Stampin' Up! French Foliage and I create Thank You Cards

Another card I created last night, this one I had a touch more success with. Well, I am happier with it than the multi-layered card I made up last night... I am still not overly impressed with it... I think today I have to clean that craft room up, and get my mojo back!
I have used a new favourite stamp set, one you've seen me use quite a lot recently, French Foliage. I love how it comes out looking different every time... I have done a bit of masking with this card, stamping the leaves in Old Olive, Peach Parfait, and Cherry Cobbler. The splatters, text and sponging was done in Early Espresso, Soft Suede and Crumbcake. The sentiment is from Curly Cute and I have framed it using the Decorative Label Punch. I have actually made it so that when the card is standing, you can see the sentiment through the label punch window... Here is another picture...
I am entering this into the Less is More Recipe challenge which this week is to have your focal image in one of the designated squares.... I will definitely be trying this one again once my craft room is in working order again. Turns out, that I just cannot craft comfortably in a complete mess...

very clever how you can't see it's an aperture card until you open it, loving that stamp set. Flicked straight past it in the catalogue but may have to have a closer look now!

Lovely colours Jess and I love that stamp set too, although I haven't had much chance to use it too often as yet!
Great window effect!
