Go Fish Challenge #20-Thank You card

Hi there! Time for another Go Fish Challenge!  We are challenging you to make a thank you card using your favorite color.  You will rarely see me wearing the color pink, but I LOVE pink when it comes to cardmaking! Maybe it is because I live in a house with 4 boys?
For this card I used two The Stamps Of Life sets-chevron2stamp and phrases to say.  The zig-zags are actually one large stamp.  To get the shade variation, I stamped the entire thing in Stephanie's Guava ink (clearsnap). I then took a piece of scrap paper (you know the kind kids use in school to practice their writing? It is very thin and absorbs ink well.) I layed it over just the top zig-zag and let it absorb the ink and then carefully removed it.  I love the kind of distressed look I got.  I promptly went into my little guys craft area and took some more of their paper (they have oodles) to stash in my desk.  I will definitely use this technique again!
I hope you get a chance to play along with us at Go Fish Challenge!
