Mixed Indigo

Good morning, Friends! I am pre-posting this as we will be up early this morning and driving back to Colorado! What a great visit we had!

Today's card was inspired by a card I saw in the recent PaperCrafts magazine. Mine doesn't look anything like the magazine one, but the card I saw inspired me to use some of my new products. I started with a card base of Whisper White. I cut down another piece of Whisper White and glued a piece of the Blushing Bride pleated satin ribbon to it. Then I stamped the greeting from Friendly Phrases in Island Indigo right above that. I popped this up on the card base. Then I stamped the flower from Mixed Bunch on a scrap piece of Whisper White in Island Indigo and punched it out with the Blossom punch. I colored in the flower with the Blushing Bride marker. I also punched a flower using the same punch from Island Indigo. I attached these two punched flowers together and popped them up on the card. Then I ran some linen thread through a Baja Breeze button (from the new Twitterpated designer buttons) and glued that to the center of the flowers. The last thing I did was to curl the edges of the flower petals to give it some more dimension. A super simple card! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
