Bursting with Thanks

Hello Crafty Friends,

I have been at home all day enjoying the day off, but thinking about what I need to do to be ready to go back to school tomorrow. In a little while I am going to review my lessons, update my class web page, and then go to the store to get some healthy snacks for the week. It sure was nice having a three day weekend. 

My son asked me to make a thank you card for his girlfriend's parents. I have never met them, so I am not really sure what their style is. I decided to make a sunburst card with bright, cheerful colors.

I used a variety of My Mind' Eye patterns for the alternating strips. This sunburst technique is a great way to use scraps! I added creamy ruffled ribbon and the scalloped circle (My Craft Spot) is adhered with foam squares for dimension.    

I think the sunburst technique puts a smile on your least it does for me. : )
Other Materials:
cream card stock
Fiskars stamp ~ Thank You set
Versafine Black Onyx ink

Be sure to come back tomorrow for the new Die Cuttin' Diva challenge.

Have a great night!
