Kylie's International Blog Hop--Gratitude Inspired by Thiland and CCASC230

This week on Kylie's International Blog hop we are making cards based on the theme Gratitude inspired by Thailand.  When this blog hop goes live, the annual incentive trip earners from Stampin' Up will be in Thailand.  I plan to be right along with them in the future.    When I started thinking about Thailand, I kept thinking about shapes that come to a point on top (triangle-like) and gold metallic accents everywhere.  I also looked it up and found that there are peacocks in Thailand.  Someone who actually earned the Thiland trip will have to let me know if my inspiration is based in reality or my ever active imagination.

I decided to use my lemon-lime twist ribbon on this card and once that decision was made, I chose the other colors based on the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge.  I tried to add a lot of gold accent including a sticker on the inside of the card with the pointy shapes I think of when I think about Thiland.

Don't forget to check out the inspiration for this project created by the design team and the other amazing entries in CAS-C&SC230.  I'm not sure gold is allowable in this color challenge, but it is in others, so we'll see.  I just couldn't make a card inspired by Thiland without it.
