Much Appreciated

My neighbor dropped off a coat for my daughter Karen. My neighbor is a petite little thing - skinny, beautiful (HATE HER)...just kidding! I really love her...she has the biggest heart! I treasure our friendship!

Karen looks so sophisticated in this coat. It is a beautiful caramel italian wool....so we immediately decided to send a thank you note.

I created this (5x5) white base. I added some DCWV designer paper. It is from a pack I picked up at Joanne's a long time ago. I used a zig zag stitch around the edge. I punched the white layer with my marvy punch and the ruby layer with my nestability oval. The ribbons were scraps from my desk. I stamped on the brocade wide grossgrain ribbon with the dark chocolate papertrey ink. I sewed both scraps of ribbon directly on the card. The main image and sentiment are from Garden Of Life. Alli has a knack for making some SUPER flowers! Main image mounted on dimensionals. I have a small green rhinestone in the center of the flower. Fun! What do you think?

stamps: Garden of life (papertrey ink)
paper: white, ruby red, dcwv paper pack
ink: chocolate (papertrey ink)
misc: ribbon (SU!, mayarts), dimensionals, nestabilities, punch (marvy), rhinestone, sewing

Awwww! Beautiful card and thanks for the compliment. It's nice to see you are on the ball to thank people so quickly--I have a stash just for that reason otherwise I would be in trouble.

Oh my gosh we must've been on the same brain wave...I just made a card yesterday with the flower paper that came with the circle paper you used and I almost used the circle paper. LOL I just seen your card today. I love it!!
