Beautifully Happy Thank You

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card is inspired by a couple of challenges, uses product from our two fabulous current catalogues and the Sale-a-bration brochure.  I hope you can take something from this combo of products to inspire you to create.  If you like my card I'd love for you to vote for it in Kylie's International Blog Highlights.  This super gallery of cards goes live at 4 pm on January 9th here in Ontario Canada.  Simply click the heart in the top right corner of my card in the gallery.  Thanks so much for your support!  

The card layout is inspired by Amy's super fun sketch challenge #567 from Freshly Made Sketches. The awesome Cherry Cobbler, Blackberry Bliss and Granny Apple Green colour combo is inspired by the #501 colour challenge over @ CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge.  Please click on all three hyperlinks and enjoy the inspiration!
