Thank you

Today I have a 'Thank You' card colored entirely with Broken China Distress Ink.  After I stamped the image, which is my new item, I couldn't find any paper in my stash that I liked so I inked some white paper and then colored the ribbon, as well.  The background has been embossed, there is some lace along the edge and then I applied a few Liquid Pearls.  What looks like a quick and simple card actually took me several hours; it just refused to come together.  I'm afraid I found some holes in my stash and will have to go shopping!  Don't you just hate when that happens, LOL!?
