Curvy Thanks

Hi everyone. Popping in to share another card for my sale basket at work.  I seem to have gone through a lot of Thank You cards lately, so just replenishing.

My card today features a Simon Says die  - thanks scallop border.  Love the scallop edging as well as the piercing on this die.

I first cut the thanks die using white card stock.  I then ventured into my scrap basket and pulled out this pretty print paper.  Not sure of the company name of this as it was just scrap pieces, but I don't think this company is around anymore.  The solid pink colour card stock was just scrap pieces as well.  Great way to use those cut off ends for projects like this.

I cut a piece of the solid card stock to fit behind the "thanks' to make it stand out.  I used PTI scallop die (medium) to cut a couple of pieces of scallop edgings for the top.

The flower is from SU - stippled blossoms, using Altenew Blush & Crimson for the inks.  I then cut the flower out.  The leaves were previously stamped off a while ago, but I think I used SU inks.

To finish off I added a glitter enamel dot for the center of the flower and a silk bow.

Thanks for your visit today.  Have a great day!

Well, I can hardly express how utterly charming and pretty I find your card, Pauline! The double scallop above with the pearls and bow, and that very cool die forming a border below... I just love that sweet and dainty paper, too. It reminds me of Chatterbox, which was always so pretty and often had a linen-like texture. I still have some, different pattern. The flower with it's glittery center is the perfect finishing touch. All so beautifully matched. Wow!
