It's a Jumbo Thank You

Hi everyone! Ready for the weekend? Getting ready for Thanksgiving? We had snow today, which made it feel a little more like the holidays. :)

It's time for a new CAS-ual Fridays challenge:

The challenge is to create a project with eight of one item (e.g., sequins, colors, papers, etc.). I went with eight letters on my card:


I used a sentiment from Another Thank You and heat embossed it with some glittery blue embossing powder. I love how the color shifts with the embossing (and by the way, I love this embossing powder--I've had it for 5 years and it still embosses without stray flecks). I simply layered the image over some patterned paper.

I still had the felt flowers on my desk that I used from my last post. ;) Ha ha. Do you do that, too?

Here's a close-up:

ETA: I'm linking up my card in the Runway Inspired Challenge. I think the background, pink flower, and pattern work with the gorgeous image:
