Instead of a square card I scaled everything down and created a standard A2 card. I changed the color a little bit using Autumn Rose by PTI and Very Vanilla by SU. The dp is a smaller design by Authentique (collection: Uncommon). Then I used the smallest of the Classic Frames Template Die (JustRite), and for my sentiment "A Cheery Hello" by Flourishes. I created a small bouquet of roses with leaves over a small piece of doily that I cut down and slipped underneath the horizontal light lavender ribbon. Then I added the smallest flat pearls on the rose mat and on one leaf to mimic a dew drop.
It was a pleasure to CASE one of your lovely cards, Pattie. Enjoy your week. I hope you'll be able to spend some time with a friend this week, enjoy a nice cup of tea and a cheery hello!

This is GORGEOUS!!! I love the bit of doily as the platform for that delicious little bunch of flowers...brilliant! AND I LOVE how you framed them in the three descending in size dies. It is topped off with the perfect sentiment. I LOVE this!
