A Botanical Builder and Petite Pairs Thank You Card

I had some scraps of "Bloom & Bliss" Designers Series Paper (DSP) and I was going to toss them because they were only about an inch wide.  But if you know me like my family does, you know I can't throw anything away!  You know what happens when you do!  That's when you need it!  LOL

This card was very fun to make.  I used Rich Razzleberry for the base of the card.  Then I added a layer of Crumb Cake and then the Whisper White piece that I stamped on.  I stamped the ferny looking image from the "Timeless Textures" set using Crumb Cake ink that I stamped off once. Then I stamped some dots from that same set using Blushing Bride ink.  I stamped it directly and then stamped again for a lighter color pink.

I took my 1" pieces of DSP and used the triple banner punch on the ends.  I used the next size up to make the layer but it was too big, so I had to trim it up a bit on each side.  I stamped the words on a piece of Whisper White and layered it with Crumb Cake like I did the other two DSP pieces.

The flower, flower center, and the leaves are from the "Botanical Builders" Framelits set.  I like to take a chop stick and curl the edges of the flower petals before I attach it to my card.  I have torn petals of doing that before but if you're adding a center to the flower it's easy to hide the tear!  I set my flower in place using a pop up glue dot (I'm low on Dimensionals) and I added the leaves to the dot too, before I set it in place on the card.  I added a "White Perfect Accents" dot to the center of the flower.  I suppose I could have colored it with a permanent marker to make it pop more but I didn't think of it until now. 

I thought it was a very fun card to make. It has lots of pieces, which I often like to play with and it's got lots of colorful movement to it.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

Good morning Wanda,,, I check you blog everyday but I just don't comment, but I have to say your cards are soooo pretty and I LOVE this one as the rest. I love the Botanical Blooms set with the framelits. I do believe it's my very favorite set that SU has come out with. I use it a lot. Thanks for sharing all your cards and I will catch your blog tomorrow. Have a great day.
