Stampin' Up! Curly Cute paired with Hope & Strength makes cute Thank You Cards

I've had quite a productive day today, not only making up 2 cards, but getting a good portion of uni work done... I headed back into the craft room this evening, and whipped this up
Anyway, this was made using the Strength & Hope stamp set from the Autumn/Winter mini catalogue, and also the Curly Cute sentiment set. I have stamped the swirl in Pear Pizzazz and then stamped it a second time without re-inking it. I have then stamped the Thank You in Old Olive. I have paired this with Old Olive Designer Series Paper (Brights Stack) and rounded the corners. I added a bow made out of Very Vanilla grosgrain ribbon.
This card is actually being entered into 3 challenges (a lot for me...) the first one being the Clean and Simple stamping card sketch, the brand new CAS-ual Friday Challenge blogs Texting Skills and the Less is More Thank You or Congratulations challenge.
Happy Stampin!
