Stampin' Up! French Foliage paired with Curly Cute and I create a one layer Thank You Card

Hi guys! I have been in a massive stamping slump lately, I haven't crafted since Monday, I've tried but every time I sit down, inspiration leaves me.... Tonight though... I was determined!
I started with a Confetti White base, masked it down one side using some Post-It Notes, then stamped and embossed some leaves from French Foliage in clear. Once I'd heat set them, I started my sponging. I started with Certainly Celery, then Pear Pizzazz a touch of the new In Colour Lucky Limeade, and then on the very edges some Old Olive. I then stamped over the top of this all the text stamp from French Foliage, and where it was on the leaves, I went over it with a sponge to remove it. I then took off the post it notes and stamped the Thank You from Curly Cute in Lucky Limeade. 
I am entering this into the Less is More one layer challenge which is to use Ink. Make sure you drop in for some inspiration from Mandi and Chrissie and the rest of the people entering, some wonderful works of art!
Thanks for stopping in, hopefully I'll be back with more later, when my mojo returns
