Thanks So Much

I always try to get something made for the Impression Obsession challenges.  This time the IO theme is Give Thanks & I went pretty simple.  My card is also for the Inkspirational Challenge--Anything Goes with Silver and Share Handmade Kindness Wk 2--Community.
I stamped & white embossed IO CAC Spatter (CC059) twice on watercolor paper & used 2 pink Zig markers for a bit of an ombre look.  I used pink because this card was given with a little treat to the tech who did my mammogram.  She was super professional, friendly & efficient. The sentiment die was cut from self-adhesive fun foam & covered with silver foil.  Silver sequins provide the embellishment. Edited to add: Lots of texture so just realized I can enter at Virginia's View.
I know you all join me in feelings of great sadness at the horrible tragedy in Paris, again reminding me of how precious life is & how lucky I am.
