Bold Blossom Thank You Card

Happy Saturday!
I hope that you're enjoying the weekend. The day started quite grey and rainy here, but I think I see the sun trying to peak out through the clouds. Today's post is a card I made for the Friday Mashup Challenge 12 Sketch Using the Colors Cherry Cobbler, More Mustard and Very Vanilla. I knew right away that I wanted to use my new Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch and the coordinating Bold Blossom stamp set, but I had to think about what DSP to use. I looked through my large selection (I'm a hoarder of DSP) and found Autumn Traditions from last year's catalogue. For the top layer I decided to stamp various butterflies using the colours and the butterfly from the Bold Blossoms stamp set. To soften it up, I sponged the edges.

Here's my card:

Here are the details:

CS: Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, More Mustard
DSP: Autumn Traditions (retired)
Stamp Set: Bold Blossom
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, More Mustard
Embellishments: pearl from Pretties Kit (retired)
Tools: Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch, Modern Label Punch, Word Window Punch

Enjoy the weekend,
