Thanks (again)

Apparently I am on an analogous colors kick.  Many cards I've made recently have an analogous color palette.  I first showed the purple-red-orange background here; then the blue-green one yesterday, and today I am sharing one with red, orange and yellow:

I repeatedly stamped the same Thank you stamp from the Lawn Fawn So Much to Say stamp set in three colors to create the background, then added an orange circle cut with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Party banners, then cut the sentiment from Lawn Fawn Scripty Thanks die.  I added some shimmer to the die by a Zig Wink of Stella pen, then put a layer of glossy accent on top.  Love how the shimmer is "locked" beneath the gloss.

I rarely use the stamp for the entire background.  Thanks to the Muse at CASE Study I was inspired to do this:

When I first saw it, I knew I wanted to make a Thank You card.  Then, I was drawn by the repetition of the stamps so I picked that Thank You stamp for the entire background.  The bright orange circle caught my eye, of course, so I added one to my card too, and used black die cut "Thanks" to echo the card.

I'm linking my card to:
