American as Apple Pie

     Now, that Christmas is over, it's time to make a few thank you cards.  I used the F419 Sweetie Pie and D379 Apple Pie to create this all American thank you note.  I didn't intend to go patriotic, I started by using some red gingham paper but it need something else to go with it so out came the blue.

     I always think gingham needs some white eyelet lace so I added a lacy white border to the checks and then the blue border around the edges of my images and the center mat.  This is the first time I've used a mat underneath the punched border.  I think it's a neat effect.



     I went to my patriotic drawer, Yes, I have a red, white and blue drawer of embellies.  I keep everything sorted by color because it makes it easy for me to find the right embellishment for my cards.  Anyway after sorting through for the right embellishment, I found these flowers and felt they had the country charm I was looking for so I added them to the corners.   This left a large empty space in the upper right so I went to my red drawer and found these lovely red rhinestone flourishes, just the right thing!
