Thank You x 3

Hi everyone.  Sharing a set of three cards for the CAS Watercolour December Challenge - Thank You, before it closes on Dec. 15th.  Bonnie is hosting this month, and what a great challenge for the end of the year.

These three cards were created fairly quickly.  Once I decided on the design, I simply made three of everything for the card base, die-cut corner panel with copper card stock backing, and stamped thank you.  I used a complete stamp set to stamp in permanent black ink and then watercoloured the blooms and leaves with zigs.  The matching dies make it quick and easy to cut them out.

Here's a close-up of all three ...

There are just two weeks to play along this month.  We've shortened the playing time this month only, so that the team has some quiet time to get ready for the holidays. :)

Paper:  Mixed Media (Strathmore 140 lb. 400 Series); White (Neenah 110 lb.); Copper card stock (unknown)
Ink:  Versafine Black; Zigs
Accessories & Tools:  Corner die (AliExpress), Waterbrush, Matching dies for Even More Flowers (Simon Says Stamp)
