Flower Thanks

Good afternoon all.  Thought I would get a quick post in while my kiddies were napping.  I made this great Thank You card for my hubbies Aunt and Uncle.  They sent the kids some crafty Christmas presents and they really loved them.  I really love how the card came out and think it is one of my favorites so far.

Card Recipe:

  • Card base is size A2
  • White Sakura gel pen for faux stitching
  • Elegant Edges cartridge swirl cut at 4" x 5.25"
  • Forever Young cartridge flower 10 cut at 2", 1.5", and 1"
  • Cappuccino twine from The Twinery
  • Buttons from stash
  • Sentiment from My Pink Stamper Everyday Life
For each flower I cut two 2", two 1.5" and one 1" and then staggered them.  I then bent the petals up around the layers.  I hope it stays that way through the mail but I am not holding my breath.  I am entering this in the bloom challenge over at Bitten By the Bug 2.  The challenge was to use the six petal cut from the Bloom cartridge but since I don't own that one I used the six petal flower from Forever Young. 
Hope you enjoy the card and have a wonderful afternoon.
