Fab Friday Sketch Challenge: Heartfelt Blooms

Good morning!  I don't know about you but I'm always in the need of thank you notes, I really do try to write and send them regularly to let friends know I appreciate what you do.  For today's card I used the  Fab Friday Sketch challenge as inspiration for this eclectic thank you I recently sent a friend.

I started with Peekaboo Peach cardstock for the cardbase and then added a piece of Island Indigo cardstock that was embossed with the Big Shot and Garden Trellis Embossing folder for the cardfront.  To that I added a strip of the Tutti-Frutti Designer Series Paper (I love that there is such a variety of patterns in this pack, definitely something for everyone) and then added a piece of Gold Foil Paper along the side (yes gotta have the bling!)

For the main stamped image I cut an oval out of Whisper White cardstock using the Big Shot and Stitched Shapes Framelits and then used the Heartfelt Blooms stamp set (FREE during Sale-a-bration) and stamped it in Sweet Sugarplum ink lightly on the two edges.  Then I stamped the greeting (from the same set) using Berry Burst ink.  I used dimensionals to attach the greeting to the cardfront and the final touch was to add a bow tied using Berry Burst 5/8" Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon for a soft feel.

I love the contrasts of the geometric design in the back with the feminine flower from the stamp for just the perfect balance and fun.  And since my friend loves bling as much as I do I know she'll appreciate the gold foil accent.  The great thing about this card is that it's really easy to pull together but looks dressed up to impress.
