Thanks, Michelle!

Yesterday I got to stamp!!! I made a thank-you card for my cousin Michelle. When Alyssa and I visited her shop, we wanted to buy some of her gorgeous merchandise, and she refused to let us pay.
I started with a Fresh Cut Note card (remember those?). I stamped the front with Floral background in Bravo Burgundy then I tore off the edge, removed the laser cut petals and sponged all around with Burgundy. I embossed a clear button with Irridescent Ice EP and put a pink rhinestone brad through it. I put a felt flower behind the open flower and used the button and brad to hold it in place. I backed it with a piece of Parisian Summer DSP and used dimensionals to adhere it to the inside of the card. The finishing touch is some pink taffeta ribbon.
Here is the inside of the card. Now you can see why I rarely stamp a sentiment in a card; I stamped it crooked AND didn't get the whole thing inked properly. At least that proves that it's handmade!
Supplies (all SU): Stamps: Floral, In My Thoughts (retired); Paper: Fresh Cut Notes, Parisian Summer DSP; Ink: Bravo Burgundy, Old Olive, VersaMark; Accessories: Fire Circles brads, Flower Fusion, clear buttons, Irridescent Ice EP, Pretty in Pink taffeta ribbon
