thanks for....

Hi there... had some free time today so decided to play along with the Designer Draft Challenge over at Paper Smooches
I used Uplifters Stamp Set and Kudos Words Dies from Paper Smooches.
The background was inked up with Distress Inks, Worn Lipstick and Dried Marigold.
I die cut and inlaid the word Wonderful and gave it dimension with some foam. I then did a little masking with the "thanks for being so Awesome" sentimment.. inked it with Adirondack Ink - Watering can, I wanted it too look softer and black ink would of been way to heavy.
The little hearts are also from the Uplifter stamp set...
