An old stand-by

Finally, I get to upload a card! I'm almost as nervous about this as I was the first time I posted. lol

I lost so many sets to retirement this year. I have very few sets left that have images. Most of what I have are sentiments. But, I am trying to replenish my "sample basket" with what I have until I get to order new stuff. (hyperventilate....I can't wait!!!) Anyway, Heartfelt Thanks is an old standby so I used it to make this card.

The Linen BG was stamped in creamy caramel on whisper white cardstock and then the edges were sponged in bordering blue. You can't tell in the scan, but the centers of the flowers have dazzling diamonds. The flowers were stamped in bordering blue for the first step and then the outline stamp was in night of navy. I cut them out and popped them up with stampin' dimensionals. The "stems" were stamped in creamy caramel. This was mounted on a layer of creamy caramel cardstock and then a layer of bordering blue cardstock and then on the whisper white card that also had the Linen BG in creamy caramel. Thanks was stamped in creamy caramel on whisper white cardstock with heartfelt stamped over it in night of navy and then that was mounted on bordering blue cardstock over ribbon.

This was a very fun card to make, even though it is not spectacular. I hope you enjoy it a little.
