Thank You So Much!

I made this card (well, two of these cards really) for a few friends of mine. I have seen this layout a few times lately and thought I would use it. The card stock is Baja Breeze. I used this foil paper that my friend gave me in this pink-y color (thus, one of the thank you cards went to her for her thoughtfulness), used my big notes die, and then cut it in half. Then on Whisper White, I stamped the leaves from Bold Blossom (in Wild Wasabi) and a flower from that hostess set Punch Potpourri (in Pretty-in-Pink). In the center is the sparkly brad in the in color Blushing Bride (shhhh... don't tell). Finally, I stamped the sentiment from the Bold Blossoom set in Baja on white and used my oval punch to punch it out. Then I punched a scallop oval in Pretty-in-Pink.
It's simple, but I believe it expresses my gratitude to two lovely ladies for their kindness to me!
Thanks for looking!

Birthday Challenge

So I really wanted to get a card done for this week's challenge on Stamping 411. I just got my free ribbon and buttons from the SAB cattie, and I got watercolor paper, too. I wanted to try to do watercolor. I need to work on it.

The colors are Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point, and Old Olive. I used 1 1/4" square punch and the 1 3/8" square punch. Then I used the small oval and popped up the daffodil delight using dimensionals. I also used the SAB ribbon and the buttons.

I gotta get this on Stamping 411 before I crash...

Thanks for looking...
