A thank you card using the sketch from this week. I cut both the bow (Lil Inker) and flower swirl at Die club this last Friday. The EF is "Vine Pattern" from Darice. The white circle behind the pink with sentiment is from the Spellbinder Rosette Wall (I cut it from the EF). I added a few half pearls colored with copics to match. The Thank You is from Serendipity and it is one of my favorites, I first spotted it on one of Reddyisco's cards!
Thank you so much for stopping by to take a peek. It is always appreciated.
EDIT: Oh My Gosh... I can't believe I forgot to tell you about the most fun part of this card! I was digging through one of my craft drawers in search of something and I came across this NEVER USED Score Bug. Major distraction...totally forgot about what I was looking for! What is that? she says.... I go to my computer and proceed to do research...AND find out it is a Score Bug and proceed to watch a tutorial (can you believe it?) on how to use it. SOOOOOO the little tiny bumpy lines (in lieu of scoring) on the top and bottom panel behind my circles was done with my "first time in the gallery" Score Bug... is that a hoot or what? I see many of you smiling.... somewhere YOU have one too!

I have never seen such a beautiful circle mat, Peggy! Love that effect nor would I have ever thought to do that! Even your die cut bow is as elegant as the ones you tie. The pink is just gorgeous and so is the richly embossed background. You have never done a card that does not exude elegance.

You amaze me with your ability to get the proportions just right on your cards! Everything is so beautifully balanced. I think this card is gorgeous. The rosette behind the sentiment panel is (as previously mentioned) wonderful. I really like that 'Thank You' too. There are hundreds out there; isn't it amazing that one just catches your eye? TFS

Peggy, this is elegant - way beyond beautiful!! the white and soft pink and that gorgeous circle mat made me gasp out loud!! The embossed BG shows off the perfect placement of your flowers across the bottom, just beneath your "Thank You", and made this a real standout in the gallery!!
