A Checkered Thanks

I made a simple thank you card using a checkered background stamp from Off Beat Backgrounds by Waltzingmouse . The 'thanks' is from Say It Loud another WMS set. I stamped the checkers on a white panel - layered it to a Simply Chartreuse panel and layered that onto the card.

My design was inspired by a checkered green trimmed pillow at the web store - MacKenzie-Child - the inspiration site for Saturday's Inspiration challenge over on Split Coast.

This is also for
 the Cas-ual Fridays challenge - to make a CAS thank you card.

the Less is More challenge - use black and white and a touch of color

Thanks so much for stopping by today - hope you are having a lovely weekend!

Stamps: Waltzingmouse - checkered stamp from Off Beat Backgrounds, Thanks from Say It Loud
Paper: white, simply cheatreuse - PTI
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black

Ms. Julia, I just want to say thank you so, so much for the wonderful Anniversary card you sent me! I was so touched, what a lovely gesture and so very much appreciated! I continue to stalk your blog but have been neglectful in leaving any comments. My NY's resolution is to get back in the habit this year, especially since there are so many creative women like yoo out here sharing your amazing talent (as you've done with this card!).

Thank you again my friend. Blessings to you and your family for the new year!!
Hugs,
Anne
