 I've been making Thank You cards's one with quite a bit more detail than usual. But I really wanted to use my "old-fashioned" ladies stamps again, so this seemed a good enough excuse.

The color scheme was chosen to fit a were a few other things.
Such as the layout

Lots of sparkle on the lady on the left as well as on the Merci Beaucoup die cut.
