Botanical Builder, Timeless Textures, Touches of Texture Thank You Card

This was a very fun card to make.  In face I made 4 of them. 3 of which went to 3 wonderful ladies who left comments on my post from July 23rd.  You can see that post here.  I was going to do a random drawing but since it was only 3 people who commented. I decided not to do the drawing mainly because I didn't like the way that card turned out.  SO, they each get one of that looks close to this one.

I do like this card, but if I was to do it over, I would have made the card as long as the card front so there'd be no top or bottom border.  But it's okay, I still like it.

I used So Saffron for the decorative paper.  The card stock colors are Peekaboo Peach and So Saffron. I also added Pear Pizzazz leaves.
Now this is not my original idea. I had found it on the internet.  And I was not able to find where I got the original card from. My computer now runs on Linux (my son thought it would be better - if you like rebooting every time you want to use it, though I don't see how that is better!!).  Anyway, I lost the site where I was at when I had to reboot.  All I remember was that it was a typepad site.  So, if this is your card (with a few minor changes) or if you know who made a card similar to this one, please let me know so I can give that person the credit that is due to them.

What I found fun about this card was the gold glitter paper centers.  Oh and the "Timeless Textures" images I added. That was not on the original card.  

The words are from the Hostess "Gift of Love" set.  I need to play with that set a bit more, it's got some fun elements to it.

I thank you so very much for stopping by today,

Beautiful card and your choice of colours is WOW. You always have such great ideas and I might just have to try my hand at this card. Thanks for sharing your ideas with the newbies(that's me) and the oldies of the world. Sheila
