Thank You in Sunshine Yellow

I belong to a group called PEO (Philanthropic Educational Organization ) International.  Our main goal is to help each other and to help women who are pursuing a college education with scholarships and encouragement.  This month we were visited by a representative from our state chapter who gave us some pointers and encouragement. The ladies asked me to make a thank you card for her to go along with a special gift we bought for her.  Our colors are yellow and white and our flower is the marguerite so I tried to incorporate those in the design. I used the Z fold design..... again. Please don't laugh at my water color attempt. Hey, I keep trying. The stamps are from Stampendous and they were embossed in white and colored with distress inks and a water brush. To add a glass effect to my jar I embossed it with UTE three times. The Thanks is from PTI.

Those of you who know me know that unlike my friends Donna and Judy I have a trepidation when it comes to mixing papers. PTI makes that easy for me. I buy their paper packs that have different designs in the same color.  Baby steps, my friends. This paper is their harvest gold.

Of course, I had to jazz up the inside with some dies I used Memory Box Wildflower corner  and Memory Box Sylvan Corner.  For the middle panel I used a Martha Stewart punch  and added a few more marguerites (daisies).  I also made a matching envelope box, but I forgot to take pictures of it. 

I really like how this came out and I welcomed the break from fall and Christmas cards. 
I will enter this in the
