Zen Thanks with Elizabeth Craft dies


Hello, today I made a fairly simple card enhanced by themed printed papers and inked cuts.  I began with the  Elizabeth Craft Asian Accessories set.  I knew I wanted the umbrella shade to be cut from a pretty floral paper.  I chose the background paper and cut the rest of my pieces.


I cut the umbrella handle and rocks in white card stock.  I used Distress inks to color them.


I manipulated the embossed lines in the umbrella to create dimension.  I cut the sentiment from coordinating paper.  The resulting card is about as clean and simple as my work gets.  Therefore, it's my zen thank you card.
