Simple Thank You Cards

Recently I used the retired stamp set "Just Believe" to create a few simple yet bright and cheery thank you cards.I started by stamping the tall grass on a 2 1/2" x 5" piece of whisper white cardstock item#100730 in classic black ink item#126980.
Then I took a sponge dauber item#102892, one for each ink color, and create my colorful background in a circular motion. I used the following classic ink colors:real red item#126949, pumpkin pie item#126945, summer sun (retired), green galore (retired), marina mist item#126962, and a children's ink purple (retired). Once the colors dried, I used a Uni-Ball Signo Gel Pen item#105021, to add accents to the tall grass and plants.
I then matted the whisper white piece onto the black cardstock item#121045 sized 5 1/4" x 3".
Next, I adhered the black cardstock piece to the card base. The card base is summer sun (retired) cut at 8 1/2" x 5 x 1/2" and scored at 4 1/4".
And lastly, I stamped "Thank You" on a piece of whisper white that was punched with the Large Oval punch item#119855 and mounted it on a piece of only orange (retired)that was punched with the Decorative Label punch item#120907.
