A Rose Flower Fest!

Today I wanted to make a thank you card, and I decided to play along with a couple of Challenges! I've been making a bunch of design and color choices in some remodeling we're doing at home, so it was definitely nice to have some design and color choices already made for me!!

So I went with this cool and fun design layout from the Create with Connie and Mary site!

And then I found this color inspiration from the Stamping 411 site! I forget to take out River Rock, but I really do like it!!

I wasn't sure at first about making all the different flowers (from the new Flower Fest set) all in the same color, but I like how they came out! The (outside of the) largest flower was punched out, and the rest were hand cut out. But they all coordinate with punches if you don't mind a little extra edge to them. - Makes it a great set to keep it quick when you want!

Anyway, I added some sponging (in Rose Red too), a little Rhinestone bling and some Shimmer Spray to glitz then up a bit too!

I added the saying from the Just Believe set - I love how the words from that set fill up the Word Window punch just right! And I added the Chantilly Crochet Trim for the bow. I gave it a little sponging in River Rock to help it coordinate better. I also sponged all the Very Vanilla pieces with River Rock too!

Have a Happy Friday!
