Out on a Limb Thank You!

I have a card to share today!  I made it yesterday, but did not have a chance to blog it til now.  I am playing along with this week's MFT Weekly Sketch Challenge.  

I started with MFT Card Stock Sampler Pack.  I used smooth white, gumdrop green, and blu raspberry.  I die cut the blu raspberry panel with the stitch frame from Blueprints 15.  I stamped this panel using MFT Premium Blu Raspberry Ink and MFT Spotlight Sentiments stamp set.  I then used MFT Rectangle Frames die namics.  To create the background panels from the sketch, I die cut three blu raspberry panels.  I cut one frame in half and glued the two halves to the bottom of the others to extend the length.  I stamped each of these frames using Fine Chevron background stamp.

I stamped the sentiment using MFT hybrid Black Licorice ink.  I added an additional sentiment tag using Blueprints 1 stitched circle.  I punched a hole and added a hemp cord bow.  I am playing along with this week's Catered Crop Thank You Challenge!
