What a wonderful way to thank someone for doing something special for you! This adorable Kangaroo card will have them bouncing with excitement when they receive this adorable Kangaroo Thank You card!

The played around with a few different color combinations for this card and decided to go with the more subdued Old Olive rather than the bright Granny Apple Green. By using Old Olive, it upped the elegance factor of this card just a bit, which I needed for this particular Thank You card. Here’s the color combination I used – you can see alternative color combinations here:

This card was extremely easy to make. I did use the Cut & Emboss Machine to create the woodgrain background on the base card, but if you don’t have an embossing machine, you can leave this step out and it will still look great.
