Polka Dots and Pretty Pink Flowers - Thanks Card

Here's another card I made using the Chelsea Gardens paper pack.  I opted for two of the more neutral papers so I could add in some pink.  Don't you just love those polka dots?

For the flowers and leaves I used the now retired Chelsea Gardens Scrapbooking Stamp set.  I also used the now retired "thanks" thin cut for the sentiment.  I'm getting a little bummed about all this "retired" talk, lol.

Here's a close up of the flowers.  I used the "Rock 'n Roll" technique with "Bashful" and "Pixie" inks.  I think they turned out pretty cute.  The leaves are  done with "Sweet Leaf", still one of my all time favorite greens since I've been with CTMH.

I added a couple strips of Sliver Glitter Paper between the b&t papers and some Sparkles in the center of the flowers for a little extra bling.  The fishtail banner looked a little plain to me so I added some polka dots with my journaling pen.

THIS card on Pinterest was my inspiration.

Here's a little side story.  I had a Close to My Heart event to go to at the end of March and I was in charge of name tags for the attendees.  I loved this card so much I used it as inspiration for the name tags.  :)

Thanks for stopping by!
