Springtime Thank You by Laura C.

This is a super simple card with just enough bling to make it special!

It's a standard 4 1/4" by 5 1/2" card base in sage green cardstock. The white is a 4x5 piece of bazzill white embossed in the cuttlebug with the swiss dot folder. I trimmed this embossed piece to a 4 3/4" length. This piece of embossed white was cut into two pieces, one 2" and one 1 3/8".
took a 1" x 4 3/4" scrap of pink cardstock and punched one edge with a lace punch. I layered this by adhering the pink cardstock to the underside of larger white piece, and then adhering the smaller white piece under the lace edge of the pink. To make the flower, it's just the spellbinders standard circles large using white cardstock and classic scallop circles large using pink cardstock. I stamped a little "thanks" in pink on the white circle, then inked the edges with an olive green ink. The stem is a thin piece of the sage green cardstock and the leaves are hand cut from the american crafts glitter paper. The flower was assembled, the white "thanks" piece pop dotted for some texture, and the final touch is some pretty bling!

This is a quick but beautiful way to tell someone thank you!
