Thankful Thursday

It's Thursday and my turn to host Thankful Thursday. Thursdays at Instyle stamps is the day we choose a sketch for you to use and create a card with any of the stamps and digital images in the store and upload it to that post. You will have one week to post your card there and a chance to win! Click HERE for all the details.
Is she a cutie or what! Today I introduce you to Mykai. I just had to have this digital image, she is adorable. When making my card I knew that I wanted to keep it simple and yet have something to make it "pop", if you know what I mean. So to achieve that I decided upon using some Japanese washi paper, this is the printed paper behind my image. I just love these papers, they come in all different patterns and color combinations.
For me, this was the best color combo out there. Some are just too much. =)

When you head on over to the In Style store, be sure to check out the awesome 4th of July sale that is going on. There are many stamps on special, so get them while their hot!

Hope you like Mykai just as much as I loved making this card.
Card Details:
Paper: Dusty Durango, Basic Black, Neenah CS
Inks: Copics
Accessories: Real Red Grosgrain ribbon, Scalloped punch
Thanks for stopping by, I sure hope all of you have a great day!
