Flower Thank You

Happy Monday!
Here's a card I made for an amazing friend I have named Patty Bennett. You see, Patty is so gracious that she has taken me under her wing, so to speak, and invited me to her downline meetings. I sincerely appreciate that she has done this and ask you to not bombard her with requests to join her group meetings unless you sign up with her as a demonstrator. She has a very full group and really cannot accommodate everyone that asks to come to her meetings. If you are willing to sign up under Patty you will have a reserved spot at every meeting. Of course if you wanted to join my team I would love to have you and we have awesome meetings too and you would have a reserved spot at those also. And during Sale A Bration it's a perfect time to join!! When the time comes that Patty's meetings are at full capacity I'm sure I will have to step aside to let her team enjoy these awesome events. Until then, I will do what I can to show Patty my appreciation for her hospitality.

Ok, so, on to the card. This card was created using the awesome new set called 5th Avenue Floral. This set was inspired by the Decor Elements wall vinyl we currently carry. I stamped this flower onto Pink Pirouette cardstock with Chocolate Chip Classic ink. Colored it in with Old Olive, Pixie Pink and Creamy Caramel Stamp & Write Markers. I started with Creamy Caramel in the center of the flower then blended the Pixie Pink to the outer edges. The stamen are colored with the Only Orange Stampin' Wirte Marker. I used Bordering Blue to create a shadow around the flower. I then scalloped the edge of this piece with the Scallop Edge Punch. Then I took the Square Scallop Punch and punched 2 corners of a square piece of Pink Pirouette cardstock. Then punched a full scallop square out and trimmed vertically across the square to create the sentiment piece which is from the Thanks x 2 Card Elements & More Kit. Layered that piece on a Large Oval Chocolate Chip punched out piece and then on the flower piece. Punched 2 slots using the Horizontal Slot Punch for the ribbon and tied the Regal Rose ribbon around the Designer Series Paper piece which is from the Bella Rose collection. Glued the DSP to the card base (which is also Pink Pirouette) added the scalloped corners and that's it. The corners, flower piece, oval piece and sentiment piece are all mounted with Stampin' Dimensionals. After the card was complete I stamped the envelope (also with 5th Avenue Floral) to match using Chocolate Chip and Pretty in Pink Classic Ink Pads.
I really appreciate you stopping by to see me today and I hope you have a wonderful week!
