Thank You #1

I'm going to be posting a few thank you cards over the next few days.  The goal was to use two challenges for each one.  This first one uses Sketch Challenge #230 over at Stamping 411 as well as this week's color/CAS challenge at the Paper Players.

Let me tell you, it was a challenge to make a thank you card in such obvious holiday card colors (although I cheated a bit using gray instead of silver!).  I think I succeeded, but I'm not sure this ranks up with my favorite cards.  Without further ado...
Thanks for checking out my blog today!

Supplies Used
Card Stock:  Night of Navy, Basic Gray, Whisper White
Ink:  Night of Navy, VersaMark
Stamp Sets:  Elegant Thank You
Other:  Big Shot, Vintage Wallpaper EF, Scallop Trim Border Punch, Scallop Trim Corner Punch, Whisper White Organza Ribbon, Silver Twine, sponge, dimensionals
