Thanks for Your Kindness


How's your weekend going? Mine is great! We got our exercise in for the day by walking all through DC and Northern VA! Boy am I still pooped! We walked on the National Mall, through the Tidal Basin and Korean War Memorial to Arlington Cemetary, then ended up in Rosslyn, VA. TIRED! We did get some great pictures, thanks to McArthur and I'll share them as soon as he says they're good to go!

This card is inspired by Raspberry Suit Color Challenge. I would never selected this color combo, so I'm really grateful for the challenge. Somehow, the card just 'fell' into place unintentionally. I started with the scallop oval nestie because it was on my scrap table from Easter cards I was making. It was leftover because it was too small for the Easter card and I saved it for future use! Little to my knowledge, I would use it just a few short days later! It's funny how you select one supply, item, stamp and then the card grows from there! Here are the EASY instructions!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Card Instructions
  1. Make card base.
  2. Stamp polka dot background on kraft cardstock rectangle.
  3. Die cut scallop oval and stamp flowers + sentiment.
  4. Tie ribbon into a bow around kraft cardstock, and add button w/ twine.
  5. Adhere scallop oval nestie and adhere kraft cardstock to card front.
