thanks so much...

Hey friends!!  Can't believe Easter is just a few days away!  Got some goodies for my boys at See's Candies the other day.  I know both will be very happy with what they get.  My little guy had 6 baby teeth removed today, but if you saw him right now you would never know it.  He is running around doing all his usual 9 year old boy stuff... didn't miss a beat!!  That wasn't the case when we got home this morning.   While he was taking it easy I took the opportunity to do some laundry and make a card!  This one is for the current Essentials by Ellen Pin-Sights challenge... the mood board is absolutely gorgeous!!  I used the current CAS(E) this Sketch layout so will be posting it there, as well.   I used my favorite Essential by Ellen Bold Blossoms dies and the Essential by Ellen Fancy Thanks set for my card.  One of these days I hope I can pick up the gorgeous Mondo Hydrangea set... there are a ton of gorgeous cards in the current Pin-Sights challenge gallery.  I die cut the largest flower from some PTI Ocean Tides cardstock and PTI swiss dot vellum and adhered them together, but slightly offset.  The leaves were cut from Simon Says Stamp Sea Glass.  I die cut the panel and adhered the strip of black cardstock.  Once that was done I stamped the large "thanks" and the "so much" from Fancy Thanks with VersaMark, applied gold embossing powder and then heat set.  Once that was done I adhered the leave and the flower.  A little gold embellishment was added to the center of the flower. 


Thanks for stopping by today...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  white; PTI Ocean Tides, Swiss Dot vellum; Stamps:  Essentials by Ellen; Dies:  A Jillian Vance Design and Essentials by Ellen; Ink:  VersaMark; Gold embossing powder; gold embellishment
