Less is More Challenge - Thank You

The title of this blog looks as if I'm thanking Less is More.  I was going to change it but it occurred to me that I do have to thank Chrissie and her team for bringing back my mojo from where it was hiding. 

                                                    The  ONE LAYER theme 
this week is 
                                          THANK YOU! 
I have been (yet again) sorting out my stamps.  I really enjoy doing this because I forget what I own!  I came across a Hero Arts set - Scattered Leaves- that I hadn't used at all. I noticed that one of the leaves had a "Thank You" dictionary definition on the surface so I decided that this would perfect for the focus of my design for this challenge.
Accurate positioning was crucial in my design so I used my Fiskars stamp press to align the 3 leaves. I bought this from the internet and when it arrived I thought that it was grossly overpriced for what it was but I have found it invaluable - especially for lining up texts. 
The blue and purple inks are part of a collection of Duo Daubers that must be over 12yrs old. I am astounded that the ink is still wet!
The sentiment is from Stampin Up. The card blank is 6" by 6"

Fantastic card and so glad you've delved into your stash ... I know what you mean about forgetting what you've got. I try to keep my stash to a minimum but then come across some old unloved item and it has a new lease of life!
Thanks for taking part and hope your mojo continues.
