Inside my thank you card is a layer of Basic White CS. In two of the corners, I stamped apples (from the Apple Harvest stamp set) in Memento Black ink and colored with the Stampin’ Blends.

My business coach, Brenda Ster, was one of the featured speakers. Her favorite color is pink, same as mine, so it's funny that the purple logo looks pink with her on stage. :-)
