It's Sunday and time for another fabulous challenge at The Paper Players!  

We loved all your beautiful creations this past week using our color combo.  This week,  the lovely, Jaydee is challenging us to make a CAS (Clean and Simple) Girly, Thank You card!  

I don't know many girls that don't like a little bling!  So, my card today is for a very special friend that is always there for me!  She is "My Rock" when things are down.  I am very thankful for her!  

I started with a Whisper White Base card.  (5 1/2 X 4 1/4).  The next layer is Melon Mambo. (5 1/4 X 4)  I used Heidi Swapp DSP for the top and bottom layers of my card.  I cut a Melon Mambo frame with my stitched circle dies.  I also cut a Whisper White circle with the stitched dies.  I used the new Winnie and Walter--My Precious stamp set for the big gem stone.  I colored it with Copic Markers.  I stamped the "Thanks" from the Fancy Thanks-Essentials by Ellen for the sentiment.  

I cut three Melon Mambo banners and then stamped "You Are My Rock on three Whisper White Banners.  I adhered those together.  I added a few sequins from Pretty Pink Posh to complete my card.
