Stampin' Up! Whimsical Words and I create a Thank You card

At this time of year, I find I need a lot of Thank You cards among my Christmas cards, so I sat down and made this one today
I used a More Mustard card base, then layered it up with some Whisper White. The main image panel is the Stampin' Up! Builder Wheel Polka Dots, which I unmounted it to make it easier to use, I cut out a border using Wild Wasabi card and mounted it behind the polka dots. I then cut out two circles, one in Whisper White, the other in Wisteria Wonder.  I stamped the sentiment, from retired set Whimsical Words in Wisteria Wonder (there are a lot of W's in this paragraph!) Then with some mustard felt, I cut out 2 rolled roses using a new addition to my Big Shot, which is a rolled rose die. I stuck them down on two Wild Wasabi leaves cut out using the 2-step bird punch. A little bit of twine finishes off this card. 
I took inspiration from a new challenge blog that is extremely popular so far, Runway Inspired Challenge, I have been inspired by the colours, the mustard, dark green, white and pop of purple (what is with those glasses?) I was also inspired by the actual catwalk, while I haven't used stripes, but instead I've used polka dots. I also used the sketch from Cardabilities , and finally, the Ribbon Carousel Challenge which was to use Twine.
Thanks for dropping by!
