Flowers of Gratitude

Hi Everyone,
Boy, I know spring is around the corner, I am in a cleaning and reorganizing mode. I finally put my embossing folders in categories and now I will be able to find what I need, faster. I even used 2 different folders on the card I want to share with you today.

Recently Sparkle n Sprinkle introduced a new set called Pansy, set 479. This is the prettiest set and it reminds me of spring. Pansies and Viola's love cool weather, they seem to be the first flowers out at the nurseries so I am sure we will be seeing these beauties soon around here.Since they love cool temps, they will even survive some light snows. I love seeing these pretty flowers peeking out on cool sunny days.

Here is a card that I finished today using this pretty new set.

No ribbon on this card ..... I thought those pearls would work just as well.

I used one of those mini 8 punches from We R Memory Keepers on that white glossy cs. They are really great and I have figured out ways to get a few different looks other than the ones that are suggested by the company. I just punched on the opposite corners to get this look.

Well thanks for stopping by today and I will see you soon.

Love this card Barbara! I like the twist - going diagonally, unusual but effective. Love the punched corners, the swirl and the vellum label.
