thanks...a bunch!



This card is designed for K. Werner's Color Challenge. She selected Pottery Barn Kids decor. I really like pink and brown together. A touch of green is an added third color to balance designs. And, of course vanilla is a traditional neutral.





Simply stamped are cherry blossoms in watermark ink, then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Dew dots create the popped buds of each blossom. A chocolate butterfly stops by to enjoy the flowers. The hinge clip creates a clipboard effect, along with the tab, giving proper notification of its purpose. The bottom portion features brown polka dots with a green ribbon to give the 3-layered color effect.
