many thanks...

Hey friends!!   Popping in with a card for a couple of challenges... Colour Me...! and Essentials by Ellen Mix It Up.  This time the Mix It Up challenge is asking participants to make a project using Essentials by Ellen stamps and/or dies and Avery Elle stamps and/or dies.   For this card I used the Avery Elle set Thanks a Bunch and the Essentials by Ellen set Fancy Thanks, as well as the Avery Elle Dotted Elle-ments die.  I love having a die that will cut cardstock to the right size to fit the front of an A2 card.  It provides a really nice finished look that you just can't always get when you cut cardstock with your paper trimmer.  After stamping all the elements for the bouquet using Melon Mambo and Pear Pizzazz inks I added the sentiment from Fancy Thanks using VersaFine Onyx Black ink.  Some Crystal stickles was added to the flower centers.  I used some Stampin Up! Sahara Sand cardstock for my card base.  Just like with Simon Says Stamp Fog cardstock, Sahara Sand is a nice neutral that really makes the white panel pop.   ETA:  Adding this to the current Paper Players challenge:  CAS "girly thank you".

Such a pretty, pretty card, Rosemary! The floral image is gorgeous but it's the embossed border that makes this card look so finished. Thanks for joining us this week at Colour Me AND The Paper Players!
