Plaid, Argyle and Stripes, oh my!

Here are some cards I made for a friend of mine, Stacy. Her son Nick is being confirmed in May, and she asked me to me to make her 60 invitations. She found the general layout on SCS, but I'm not sure who the original creator was..if you do, LMK! And then she asked me to make 40 thank you cards for him to give out as well. I decided to keep the paper and colors the same, just change up the layout a teeny bit. It didn't turn out exactly like I planned, but what I had envisioned wouldn't fit right, so this is what I came up with. Making 100 cards needs them to be CAS (clean and simple). Though...any cards that required me to punch 300 holes and set 300 brads...aren't really that simple! :)

Stamps- Sincere Salutations, non SU praying hands stamp
Paper- Manchester DSP, Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
Ink- Chocolate Chip
Accessories- nonSU gold brads, Photo Corner Punch, dimensionals
