thanks, you're an awesome friend

The Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is: thanks/thanks giving.

For my card I used Gerda Steiner Designs stamps (moody unicorns  and cheerful hedgehugs) and the Memorybox die Grove collage.

I die cut the grove from sturdy 140lbs card stock and then traced the opening on the card base.

Applies a range of Distress inks (forest moss, peeled paint, crushed olive and bundled sage) with the mini ink blending tool, then spritzed the panel with a mix of bleach and water to get a dappled leaf effect, as if a forest canopy.

I stamped the unicorn, from the Moody unicorns set on Crafter's Companion Neenah paper  with the Simon Says Stamp intense black ink and then let the Scan n cut, cut it out. Colored it with my Spectrum Noir markers.

Stamped the sentiment from Cheerful Hedgehugs with Memento espresso truffle.
Mounted the window panel with foamtape and adhered it to the cardbase.
Diecut the pained thanks from Simon Says Stamp from kraft card and then inked the edges with Distress ink ground espresso, adhered it to the card with liquid glue.

I both mounted the thanks and stamped the sentiment on an angle, for a different, playful effect.
 tucked the unicorn behind the trees with liquid glue.
