Monochromatic Thanks

Whew, it's been a hot and sticky one here today! After doing my freelance work this morning, the kids and I ran some errands and then decided to beat the heat by staying inside (where it's air-conditioned) to stamp! We had a marvelous time, and I had just enough time to make this fun monochromatic thank you card. The lovely bird image is another sneak peek from the Mark's Finest Papers set, Tweet Blessings, to be released next week. There are so many images in the four MFP sets being released next week that are perfect for chalks and one of my favorite techniques, Poppin' Pastels!

I made this card for these challenges:
Gotta run now--it's time to take DS shopping for new sneakers before supper. Thanks for stopping by!
