I don't know about you, but I just LOVE this sketch! I already added it to my book of "favorites". I decided to play around with the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer punch for this one...the circle shape reminded me of a SUN and the flowers just seemed to fit. I'm on a patterned paper kick lately, too. These papers came from the (ret.) In-Colors DSP pad and Sunny Garden DSP. Although the paper is retired from the actual catalog, you can still snag it in digital download form in SU! My Digital Studio. So "technically", it isn't truly retired. Which is awesome...because I just LOVE this paper. In MDS I can print my favorite patterns any time I want with a simple point-and-click. The colors are so fun and happy! That's why is was the perfect mix for a (much needed) "thank you" card today.
The circle element in Vicki's sketch reminded me of a sun, so that's where the whole "flower idea" came from. I added some color to the scalloped circle using Poppy Parade and Pear Pizzazz Stampin' Write Markers. I thought it played off the dotted background. If you haven't ordered the Itty Bitty Shapes punch pack and the matching Bitty Buttons, you really should. They dressed up my punched flowers with an extra pop of dimension. I just love those little buggers! :)
Finally, here is the inside of the card...ready for a special thank-you note:Thanks for visiting today! Please stop by Our Creative Corner and see what the rest of the fabulous DT has created this week. We sure hope you will play along! :)
Have a HAPPY day!! :)
