MTSC58 Thank You

Good Tuesday Morning Peeps!! Can you believe it? The last Tuesday of January, the last Tuesday for me as Mercy's Guest Muse! I have had such a good time working along Mercy and all her uber talented design team. It has been an honor....Thanks girls!!!

Now onto my card......which is a "Thank You" to all! I am so in love with this flower stamp, it comes from the "Abundant Hope" set from the new Occasion mini.

My card base is made with PTI white card stock and I followed that with some so saffron card stock and then more white that I ran through my cuttlebug with the swiss dot embossing folder. The flowers are stamped with black stazon onto some 140# weight watercolor paper. I colored it with my aqua painter and certainly celery, so saffron, apricot appeal, barely banana and pumpkin pie ink. I used my largest rectangle nestie to cut out the flowers with. I then sponged bashful blue all around the flower while leaving the nestie in place. I matted with so saffron and added a edge at the bottom with my Fleur-di-lis edge punch. The sentiment comes from the "For All You Do" stamp set. I stamped it onto some scrap watercolor paper with black stazon. I sponged the edges with more bashful blue and pierced along the bottom. I added a button, from my stash, with some crochet twine through it.

Well, that is all for me today, be sure and check out the rest of the Muses' and see what they have created.
