Thanks just doesn't seem like enough

Happy weekend! Hope you're having a great one so far. I just came back from running 8 miles--my longest distance yet! I'm training to run a half-marathon on September 9th and 13 miles still seems soooo long!

I'm playing along with the latest Play Date Cafe color challenge and also decided to make a square card for the next CASual Friday challenge .



For my card, I cut out strips of varying widths of Raspberry Fizz, Orange Zest and Harvest Gold cardstock. After adhering them onto my cardstock, I heat embossed a medallion from Mehndi Medallion with white powder, and added a sentiment from Autumn Abundance.

This card is being sent to someone to whom "thanks" is not enough!

Have a good day!
Melissa
