In Color Thank You

Good Sunday afternoon everyone.  I haven't done any blogging for the past week because we had company for Easter and the week after.  We also spent one day visiting our beautiful little granddaughter.  So, not much time was spent in my craft room or on my computer.  The card I want to share with you today is inspired by two challenges:  CAS(E) this Sketch #22 and CAS on Sunday #15 - Thanks.

I used Summer Starfruit card stock for the base.  I ran the front through the Big Shot with one of the Delicate Designs Embossing Folders.  The image from the Embellished Events stamp set was stamped on Whisper White card stock with Gumball Green ink.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set and was stamped using Midnight Muse ink.  I added a strip of Primrose Petals card stock that was punched out with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border PunchThe image was matted with Midnight Muse card stock after rounding the top corners on both.  I punched a hole at the top and added a piece of Primrose Petals ribbonDimensionals were used to attach it to the card.  I added the In Color Dahlias to the image with glue dots.  A really clean and simple card perfect for springtime thank yous.  Thanks for stopping by.  I'm hoping to get back in the swing of blogging this week.  Enjoy what's left of the weekend.

I love how you've made this little tag and used the embossing as one of the elements. I'm going to borrow this idea.
