Paisley Thank You

Just a quick post about a fun-to-make thank-you card. This was made for a business-woman, so I wanted it to be simple, but not too dull.  I stamped the various sizes of paisleys on plain cardstock, colored them and the surrounding space with watercolor pencils, blended with blender pens, then cut out the circle. The border was made with my favorite use-the-scraps technique: simply tape together random pieces of scraps to cover the card edges, and trim.  Since the center is covered by another panel, it doesn't matter if the scraps fully cover the card, and that's what makes it so easy to do.

The sentiment was stamped on the same watercolor paper as the center panel, and then attached with dimensional (foam) tape.
