Beautiful Blooms II Thank You

    I really like the Papertrey Ink's Beautiful Blooms II stamps and dies.  I received PTI's Harvest Gold felt for Christmas and I could hardly wait to try this combo to make a Thank You card.  I started by choosing two co-ordinating papers from the Cosmo Cricket Mini Deck: Pixie-Licious.


     Three sizes of flowers were cut from Harvest Gold Felt using PTI's Beautiful Blooms II dies. An additional medium sized flower was made with the magenta cardstock. These were all layered together on top of an Inverted Scallop die cut (Nestabilities) and then held together with an antique silver brad. The Stampin'Up Tiny Tags were stamped and punched and then added to the flower with some yellow ribbon.


     The lower portion of the card was stamped in a magenta colour with sentiments from PTI's Mega Mixed Messages. The little rhinestones highlight each word. A rick rack accent was created with felt and paper where the two different patterned papers meet. The card front was mounted on a piece of Harvest Gold card stock before I attached it to the blue-grey card base. Finally two scalloped photo corners, in magenta, were added to the top corners of the card.
