Simon Says - Thanks/Thanksgiving

Hi Everyone...welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog. Thank you for joining us for last week's challenge and we hope you can join us this week too because

and the theme for this week is...
I've been filling up my card box and using up some of my paper scraps to create quick and easy Thank You cards. I die-cut leaves from scraps of Idea-ology Christmas Backdrops using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Holiday Brushstrokes 3 Thinlits and the sentiment using Simon Says Extra Large Thank You over-stamped with the script from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Gothic Tapestry.

I began by scoring and folding Simon Says Stamp #120 Ultra White cardstock to create a batch of 5" square cards. I die-cut the leaves from scraps of contrasting green Idea-ology Christmas Backdrops using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Holiday Brushstrokes 3 Thinlits, inked the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and assembled.
I die-cut Simon Says Stamp Extra Large Thank You 3 times for each card from Distress Watercolour card. I added the die-cut leaves to the card, fixed the layered sentiment on top using Distress Collage Medium and added splatters of Walnut Stain Distress ink.
I stamped the script from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Gothic Tapestry, inked with Ground Espresso Distress Archival, on to Distress Watercolor card, added Bundled Sage Distress Oxide ink over the top using a mini round blending tool and die-cut the Thank word.
I inked the script stamp again with Ground Espresso Distress Archival ink and holding the stamp in my hands stamped randomly over the background.
I coloured Distress Watercolor card with Walnut Stain Distress ink, die-cut the You word and fixed both coloured die-cut words in place with Distress Collage Medium Matte.
