Thank You

This card is simple, once you get past the die cut.  Now, mind you, die cuts aren't hard to make, but they can seem time consuming.  The other obstacle is whenever I am researching sketches for cards, I usually end up with a sketch for stamped images.  I have to really dig into my buried artistic talent to make a die cut work in place of a stamped image.

My other obstacle, and this is completely personal, is that I seem to have a complete block when it comes to putting ribbon on my cards.  I just really shy away from that embellishment.  So, if you like what you see but feel like like it needs a ribbon, go ahead!!  I won't be offended.  I followed a sketch by mojomonday for this Thank You card.  Hope you like.

The scarecrow is from Cricut Cartridge Simply Charmed.  I also used a Spellbinder Nestibilities (Rectangle) underneath my diecut.  Nothing fancy, just wanted my little scarecrow to "pop".  Machine stitching on all the rectangles.  "Thank You" is a stamp.
