Make It Monday #2

Please scroll down to Eva's post from earlier today! I am actually going to try and participate in a PTI challenge (gasp! - hopefully I can manage to get everything linked nicely). Anyhow, it's the Make It Monday #2 challenge, using a vellum sentiment strip. I actually needed a thank you card for my daughter's birthday present and a lot of clothes! I think her wardrobe will be set for the next 2 years!

Anyhow, I stamped all three Beautiful Blooms 2 flowers on the matching die cuts. I still can't tell if I have the stamps oriented correctly to the dies, so I used raspberry fizz ink on raspberry fizz cardstock to make it less obvious if they are indeed mismatched. Then I used the largest leafy branch from Turning a New Leaf.
Can you tell there's a vellum strip there at the bottom? Maybe I shouldn't have used white vellum on white cardstock, but then I didn't know what else color cardstock to stamp the leaf image on. I punched a scalloped dotted border along the top and bottom edges with an EK success punch and just folded over the ends and taped it on the back. The "{thanks}" is a rub on from American Crafts. I thought it might look neater than stamping, except I messed up the right bracket :-( ! Hopefully it's not too obvious. Then I added some gems to the center of the flowers. It turned out to be a pretty simple card, like most of my cards :-).

Very pretty! The flowers look perfect with the Turning a New Leaf stamp and the die cut border vellum is pretty (yes I can see it, lol).
