FALL THANK YOU CARD

I am very happy with this thank you card because it started out as a weak effort but finished with real zing!
At first I used an older background rubber stamp and coloured it by smudging a trio of  inks in a random fashion. But wasn't thrilled with it, so I tried to pair it with a blue frame (cut with a sizzix die) and 'still' didn't feel it!
Finally I needed a thank you card and quickly - and that got my creative juices flowing and now I am very pleased with it, just goes to show!
I attached it to an orange cardstock card base and embellished it with some red satin ribbon and gems. I had to cover a blotch by squiggling on some Nuovo glitter on the blue top section but that is totally fine.
(covered my personal message) 

My inside became an integral part of the card as I used a border punch, stamping and more gems to frame my message. I hope the recipients feel the special attention I strived to give! 
Did you notice no white? Great! 
Thanks for stopping by!
