{SSSC} Muchas Gracias

Hi there! I used this weeks SSSC sketch for my card today. I like the really large panel and clean, no fuss lines. I knew it would be perfect for this image by Saturated Canary. Sadly, this image is retired I believe. Glad I picked it up when I did!

 I made this thank you card for a friend. I am popping it in the post tomorrow and I hope she'll love it! If not, I'm making her send it back!! Purple and red are my two fave colours, and I think they go great together! I've actually had this image coloured since I went to a retreat in October I think LOL!!! But I just needed the right sketch!! I think this image is so intricate and detailed and I just really want it to be the focus and not have any of it's beauty lost to a busy and overdone card. I think it's a gorgeous stamp and would look good no matter, but I just tend to keep the card a bit more simple when I'm using these kinds of images!

I added a butterfly die from The Cat's Pajamas in place of the 2 brad type circles. The sentiments (and hot pepper on the inside) are from the set Let's Fiesta by SugarPea Designs. I think the spanish masculine/feminine noun isn't quite right for sending a card to a woman, but I'm not even an expert in English, so I'm just pleading ignorance ;) And I don't have any other spanish sets, which is what I wanted, so this will have to do! I'm entering this card into the FB Saturated Canary Challenge- Anything Goes.

Here's the inside. I left it mostly empty, as I'd like to write a nice message inside for the recipient :)

The rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers have much more for you to see this week - please stop over and see:
