A Neutral Thanks

Karen's color challenge this week over on Split Coast was to use only neutrals - white or ivory - well I couldn't decide so I used both!
 To set off the neutrals I used a lot of texture - the embossed background, the Tim Holtz Alterations wreath die and the wonderful L'll Inker Designs bow die. I bought the bow die SO long ago and never used it (I'm saying that a LOT lately!) and decided now was the time to get it out! and I just love it - what a great bow it makes and it's SO simple! 

The Thanks is from Waltzingmouse.  It's nice to have winter Thank You's on hand!
