Beauty Abounds Watercolor Thank You Card

   Welcome everyone! Did you have a good weekend??? Since I am on vacation my family (there are 17 of us!) all went up the Palm Springs Tram on Saturday. I haven't been on it since I was 10 so it was fun to experience it again. At the top most of us walked the trails and then had a wonderful family picnic. Sunday...I WAS SORE!!! It took forever for me to get out of bed as everything hurt, especially my calves. I'm getting cramps in them every time I walk. I'm taking it nice and slow for a couple of days! On to today's card.....

   This has to be one of my most favorite dies ever! It is so intricate and it comes in two pieces and you can use both together like I did or just one of them. I had actually done the watercolor part for a different card, but didn't like the way it looked so I set it aside. After a few days I looked at it and thought that it would be good for this die and it came out perfect! I wanted the under piece to have some sparkle I just used some Silver Glimmer paper.

   This die takes up the whole front of a standard card so I knew I wouldn't need to put much on it. I chose a piece of the Bird Ballad DSP (Designer Series Paper) for the background and just wrapped a piece of the Whisper White Flax Ribbon around it. If you want to pop it up like I did, I just used a combo of the Dimensionals and Mini Dimensionals and cut them to fit.

   For the inside I just kept it simple by stamping the cute sentiment and some of the bubbles and butterflies in the colors I had used in the watercoloring. Can you imagine the look on the recipient's face when you hand them this card? They will never believe that you made it for them. If you would like to purchase the items I used to make this card I have them listed below. Thanks so much for coming to my blog today and I hope you will come back again to see what I make next. Have a great day!
