Thank you cards

This past Sunday, I attended a baby shower for a coworker. As we were packing up to leave, she was going to throw away the wrapping paper. I asked if I could have it, and said I'd make thank you cards out of it for her. I used the solid color paper for backgrounds, then layered a piece of cardstock and then images from the patterned papers.
I also added some of my button collection.

I love the images on baby wrapping paper.

I used two different stamps for the sentiment.

My favorite paper was the metallic blue, but it showed my double stick tape through it, which is why I added the cardstock. I love extra piece of paper, though, it really pulls the cards together.

I may not have a lot on here because my Yahoo group decided we'd take a break in December, and I haven't heard of any interest for a swap yet. I also haven't signed up for any swaps lately.
