Newprint thank you.

Hello all, it is my second post of the day. I had a scheduled post earlier for the ATSM DT inspiration.

I made this card just now, even though I have a couple of previously made cards to share, I am sharing this one right away.

This card is made using a paper bag. I picked up this paper gift bags, the other day. It was too tempting to not pick this one up. I used this for my card today. I used glue and stick it to a heavy card stock, and then distressed the edges using some distress inks - fired brick, forest moss, and vintage photo...these are the same inks, I always use to ink up fall leaves.

I used Sizzix die cut flower and leaves, and decided to use it in white, I personally think, white compliments the background well. The sentiment is from STAMPloration - Trendy feathers.
I stamped some tiny dots, as well, these are from Mama Elephant.
 I love the colors here.

A look at the paper bag, I used.

I am linking this with:

A simple thank you card.

I am hoping that despite a big colorful panel, it will qualify as interpretation is straight forward - giving thanks.
