Thank You

Hi, everyone! Happy Saturday!
I love Saturday blogging - there are always so many great challenges and creations in blogland on the weekends, and today is no exception; in fact, today is a new challenge day at Catch the Bug Blog, featuring all kinds of sweet Bugaboo Stamps images! Make sure you hop on by to check out all the wonderful DT eye-candy, and we hope you join us for the fun!
This week's theme is

Anything Goes

I've been busy bulking up my card stash, and wanted to create some "thank you" cards, so this week's Anything Goes theme gave me a good chance to do just that.

I thought this pretty Thank You Tulip Block would be great on my card. I created what I consider to be a version of the "old school" quilt block sketches with some of my CTMH Twitterpated papers that I had a bunch of scrap strips of. It made a great foundation for my Cheery Lynn die cuts, the Flourish and the Mini Exotic Butterfly, which I backed with an MS Punch solid butterfly. The solid butterfly is punched from glitter paper. I layered the block on a scalloped square.
Here's a closer look at the tulips:

  6. Very soft and sweet! Refreshing after feeling the hot days. I still love that die...the flourish...and waiting to order if it ever comes in. Your beautiful card makes me more anxious to want it. I know this is the larger version which I have, but still wanting the mini...haha
