Blush and Bashful {thanks}

 It seems as though I have a lot to be thankful for lately...and I do! This little number will get popped in the mail this week for a deserving friend. The poor post office seems to tire of my requests for additional postage and reassurances that no harm will come to my outgoing mail! LOL!


 I started my design by clustering a bouquet of flowers in my signature colors; Blush and Bashful! Just kidding! I couldn't resist! I do, however, love this combination of pinks. Actually, the first step was arranging the base layers including the blush doily on the side. After that was done, I just had fun stamping and layering the flowers and leaves. I originally had planned to use a diecut sentiment but in the end I didn't like it at all. I was kindof bummed because I didn't want to cover up any of the details with a solid piece of cardstock and like I said, the diecut wasn't working. Yay for vellum, right? It was the perfect fix!~





I actually really like the softness that it gives the card and makes everything seem so sweet. The finishing touches are some white sequins, diamond stickles a pink button and some navy baker's twine. I really like how it turned out. I think this would also make a pretty wedding card.  Thanks for fluttering by!

Thanks so much! They are actually from Hobby Lobby's brand "the paper studio". I bought a few other colors as well so I'm sure you'll be seeing more of them. ;)
