Gratitude to you!

Happy Lord's day to you!  Hope you all are enjoying a little rest today, or stamping.    So to start on this card I used the Playdate Cafe colorway of Gold, Silver and a Neutral.  Then I used a patterned paper for my stamping so it can be entered in the Papertrey Make-it-Monday challenge.  Paper is from K & Company.  I started stamping the flower stamp from Stampin up in Pallette Noir ink.  Then over stamped it in Versamark and heat embossed it with Gold Glory(SU) embossing powder. Mounted the background paper to Black cardstock(PTI).  I punched out the window with the Word Window punch(SU).  Tied some gold cord around the window.  Layered it on to Fine Linen cardstock from Papertrey Ink with foam tape. 
Stamped the greeting also from Papertrey in the window. 


The Less is More challenge this week was to use white space and gold as my focus so I am entering this card there also.  Moxie Fab is having a thank you challenge too!  Thanks for stopping by,
Sentimentally Sue
