It's Time for a Blog Hop

It's time for another great Blast From the Past blog hop at Taylored Expressions. This month's theme is "Thankful" and while I know I should have made a Thanksgiving card (since I need a few), I just picked up some new paper from MME (it's new for me :) ) and couldn't wait to use it! So instead, I made a thank you card. You can never have enough!

Back to the blog hop....hopefully you arrived here from Yaritza's blog. If not, start back at the Taylor's blog so you don't miss any of the great creations.

For today's card, I chose to use Friendship Blooms. It's such a versatile set and I love using the coordinating dies with it. Such an easy way to bring all of this fun paper together.
I used the sketch from Sankari Wegman, shown here, as my inspiration.
I stamped the stems off center to leave some room for the sentiment. The flowers were cut out using the TE Friendship Blooms dies and then I stamped the button image on the turquoise and cut them out. I pulled the turquoise accents throughout. Such a fun combo with the pinks. The rest of the card simply followed the sketch.

Thanks for stopping by today! Next stop on the hop is Alex!
