So Thoughtful

 Happy Tuesday! Hope your week is off to a great start!

Today I'm playing along with PDCC68. I was SO busy last week, I didn't get to play along, so I made sure to squeeze out some time to participate this week.

Aren't these colors pretty? I was a little intimidated at first, since the pics seemed vintage...& I am NOT a vintage girl.

BUT, that's why they call it a challenge, right?
Here's what I came up with. I started with the patterned paper (some old October Afternoon) & then pulled out this book reader image. 

I ended up making a thank you card for a parent volunteer at my school. She helps me out in the library twice a week, so I'll give this to her with a little giftie at the end of the year.

Hope you like it!

Stamps: All Booked Up, Signature Greetings (PTI)
Paper: Sweet Blush, PTI Kraft, October Afternoon pp
Ink: Adirondack Pitch Black
Accessories: PTI ribbon, Nestabilities circles & scalloped circles, Michaels pearls
