Pearly Thanks

Hello there!

Today's card was made using a SSC Stamp and Scrap challenge, which I can't quite recall the details of, except that it was a recipe. I had never tried a recipe before, but seriously, this was SO easy and fun. I mean, really fun.

Print out the flower on red cardstock three times; one for base, and two for petals, then using Sakura gel pen, added a little detail. Cut out the two strips of Thrift Shop paper, and sewed them together. Stamped the sentiment onto the bottom half, and added the half pearls. Cut out the Nestabilities shapes, and add the flower. Tied the ribbon around the cardstock. Distress.

Sorry the photo is so poor - I took this a month or two ago, when I was still trying to figure out how to work the camera without the macro option (which is for some annoying reason, not working very well!)

Before I go, I want to say thanks to each and every one of you who left comments on my last post - they really do make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. :)

Enjoy your day!
