Thank you...

it is always nice to say thank you. Sometimes though, I feel that a card needs to be made. I have a ton pinned over at Pinterest so I thought it would be good if I started actually using the ideas that I pin.

So I found this beautiful card by Jodi Collins. for Taylored Expressions it was not pinned the right way so I don't have a direct link for it but if you do a search I am sure you can find it.

 

















Anyway back to my card. I am trying to use up my stash and came across an old paper pack from 2009 from Close To My Heart - Unforgettable. I also ran across these three flowers with big holes in them. I am not sure what I used them for but when I saw them I knew I had to make the card above. So here is what I came up with


It was fun to use white as a border against the cream I cannot say that I have ever done that before. These buttons fit perfectly in the empty space of the flowers. and I popped up the stamped base for some extra dimension.


I also used some of the double stitched cocoa ribbon and the sentiment is from Say it in Style one of my go to sets.


I know the new trend is to finish the insides of your cards but I have been doing it all along otherwise it just feels a little naked.



So that is it for today I hope you like the card. I will probably have a few more to share soon.
