Good morning!

It's a beautiful day here in the Midwest!  We woke up to a nice little rain shower, and it smells SO wonderful outside!  We sure need the rain/moisture in the ground, and that fresh, earthy smell is just an added bonus!!  Here's to hoping it will continue for a while.

I have a very soft, sweet and feminine card to share with you today that I made with  some of my fabulous products from Flower Soft.

This week, we're featuring the Multifunctional Die Cuts on our cards.  These are precut lengths of card stock that will make your card making life SO easy!!  For this card, I decided to use my chalks to give the flower petals a soft color, and I lightly brushed a little green chalk between the flowers to make them pop. 
The scalloped circle in the center is a preprinted die cut kit called Grandma's Embroidery.  I simply stamped the "Thanks" onto the die cut and popped it onto the front of my card.


I finished this card off with some Finesse Pearl Flourishes that I got from Peachy Keen Stamps.  These are my favorites, and I use them for SO many projects!!  The final touch was the satin ribbon that I used to tie the front of my tri-fold card closed.

It's difficult to see in the photo, but the Pink Pirouette card stock from Stampin' Up!, has a texture to it that matches the homespun textured look of the die cut background.  It's little details like that, which make me happy!  :-)

Thanks for stopping by today, and I hope your day is filled with things that make YOU happy!!
