Thank You - with Punky Sprouts

Hey everyone, sharing a card today using some of my favorite Punky Sprouts products - the Lil' Lacy Blossoms (doily) and Lil' Blossoms.

Lil' Blossoms are a little bit thicker than tissue paper and come in three sizes.  For this card I used the smallest size to create the flower which I layered over the doily.  I used some Trendy Twine and a MME button to accent the center of the flower.

Here's a little visual of how I created the pieces for the flower:

1) Fold Lil' Blossom in half and then in quarters.  Open the quarter fold and then fold one side back into the center.
2) Fold quartered piece back from center.
3) Repeat on other size.
4) Pinch in between the two sides, on the quarter fold to create a 'hill'.

I made a bunch of these pieces and then adhered them to a small punched circle.

The sentiment is embossed.  It's a little difficult to emboss on this woodgrain cardstock.  After the initial embossing, I went back with a Tsukineko Versamark pen to get the parts that weren't covered well, and embossed again.

I'll be linking this one up with the Simon Says Stamp challenge also since it's Anything Goes.

Thanks for coming by and have a great day!
