A Note of Thanks

Happy Thursday Peeps!
Today I am sharing a card I made using a couple of challenges. I used the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge and this week's color challenge on  The Paper Players Blog.

The color challenge is Not Quite Navy, Pool Party and Certainly Celery, a pretty color combo.
I started my card with a base of Pool Party card stock and followed that with some Not Quite Navy card stock. The Certainly Celery DSP is from the Soft Subtles Patterns Pack.
I then used some not Quite Navy card stock that I embossed with the square lattice EF. I added a strip of Pool Party and some more DSP, this Pool Party piece is from the Attic Boutique pack.

I pulled out a sweet little single stamp from Stampin Up called Triple Treat flower. This pretty little stamp had never been inked!! I stamped the flower three times, using each of the colors from the color challenge. I used my large fancy lower punch, my 5 petal flower punch, and  my 1/2 inch circle punch to punch out the flower layers. I added a dimensional between each layer and a tiny silver brad to the center circle. 

I mounted the flower to an embossed scallop circle made with my 2-3/8" circle scallop punch.
The little sentiment is from the Thank You Kindly stamp set. I used some pool party seam binding ribbon across the top and to tie the bow. I added a silver brad to each corner.

Well, that is all from me today, thanks for stopping by and

Love all of the layers you have on this card and you used the color combo perfectly...not overpowering any one color with the other. It's beautiful, Vicki!
