Thank you flowers

The monthly theme challenge at Paper Popsicles is cards, and last week's challenge was to make a thank you card with a flower, and then send it to someone!

I finally got to play with my new Top Note die, as well as the Little Leaves Sizzlet. I did have problems getting a clean cut on the Sizzlet using my Cuttlebug. Anyone have any suggestions? I'd really like to use it!

I stared with a piece of Kraft cardstock, and stamped the little flower from Eastern Blooms in River Rock. To get the mat for the Top Note, I trimmed the DSP on the perforated line (which is part of the die), and then cut a second piece from Ruby Red cardstock. A few flowers and dew drops, plus a simple sentiment (it shows up better in real life!) finishes off the card.

Stamps: Eastern Blooms, Trendy Trees (SU)
Paper: Kraft, Ruby Red, Green Galore cardstock, Ginger Blossom DSP (SU)
Ink: River Rock (SU)
Accessories:Top Note and Little Leaves dies, Word Window punch (SU) dew drops (Robin's Nest), flowers (Prima + misc)

I'll be dropping this card in the mail tomorrow!

Beautiful card!! I linked to your blog thru Paper Popsicles - you're on the Westcoast of BC like me - I'm wondering if we might have crossed paths at some point...I'm in Vancouver - I used to work for Clipper Street Scrapbooking in Coquitlam. Anyways - your blog looks great, great content, I'll definitely be checking back in!

Cheers! :)

I love it and can't believe it arrived in MY mail today! You have NO idea how much I needed a pick me up today. You didn't owe me anything, but now I have $15 to spend on stamps! Talk to you soon.
