A Botanical Builder and Flourishing Phrases Thank You Card

Today I needed to make a thank you card.  I was hoping to find a very large worded "thank you" in my stamp sets but this was the largest one I had.  So I had to make it work.  I die cut it and also die cut the oval scallop.  I much prefer the punches over the dies for these shapes.  It takes longer to cut these out than it did to punch them. 

I had a piece of the "Blooms & Bliss" decorative paper (DSP) sitting on my worktable and I thought I should try to use it up.  God forbid I just put it away!!!  LOL

I looked on the package of the DSP and got the colors used on the paper.  The base of my card is Mint Macaron. I added a layer of Sahara Sand and then a trimmed piece of Island Indigo.  The circle/ring of Island Indigo was a left over piece from making a spinner card.  I hated to toss those out.  They are perfectly round!!!  I taped the DSP to the Island Indigo and taped that to the Sahara Sand and then taped that to the Mint Macaron card base.  Then I took Dimensionals and added them to the back of the ring.  I set the ring in place and then embellished it with the "Botanical Builder' flower and some leaves I had in my stash from the "Rose Garden Thinlits" set.

I set the flower in place using a pop up glue dot.  I'm running low on Dimensionals.  UGH!  The words are from the "Flourishing Phrases" set and I set them in place using Dimensionals.  

This was a fun card to make and I think my friend is going to like it!

Thank you for visiting today,
