Lots of Dots!

I was hoping my Stampin' Up! "Tea Party" decorative paper would have been here so I could use it in the background. But alas it was not so I did the next best thing and used the Dotted Swiss Cuttlebug folder. But when that paper comes, watch out!!! LOL

I used the Stampin' Up! "Sweet Stems" set and colored in the flowers using Almost Amethyst, Pink Pirouette and Barely Banana. The Pink Pirouette was colored in using a blender pen and the ink pad. The other two colors were directly from the marker. Oh and the stems were colored in useing Sage Shadow. I pretty much stuck to the Soft Subtles group, it just seemed to fit with this image and layout!!!

I got to play with the Scalloped Oval punch too!!! I think it was a great idea for Stampin' Up! to come up with it!!! It's so sweet looking.

The words are from a rubber stamp I had made for me. I have often wodered if I had a stamp made for me from Stampin' Up! would it ever retire??? LOL I may have to keep that in mind. I suppose they could retire their font. Anyway, I make a LOT of "Thank You" cards and I wanted a rubber stamp that I could use that fit in the ovals nicely and this one did. I did use a couple of Dimensionals behind the oval. After taping it in place on the layers it didn't want to stick to the white card stock, it was raised up too high. SO to fix that I just added a couple of Dimensionals behind it. Problem solved!!!

I tied a 1/4" piece of white grosgrain ribbon to the pink card stock and then assembled the card. I needed to add that ribbon there, the pink area needed a little something. The bottom of the card could use a little something too but I'm not sure what so I left it as it was.

I will be making more thank you cards soon, I'm getting a bit behind in them.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

Hi! I've been wandering around blogs today, looking at ink stamp projects for future inspirtation. You have a nice eye for design/layout -- everything is perfectly placed.

I really need to get my ink stamps back out! (although I'm very much a beginning)

Have a nice day!

Thank you for this inspiration. A friend is getting married this week end, and as a wedding present I was going to make her TY cards. But have been pondering over what to do. You were a God send this morning. Also thank you for the sweet comments on my blog.
