Fabulous Florets in Blue

The card I'm sharing today uses a  layout I found in the September Stampin' Success, a magazine for demonstrators.  My card is standard 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" size.
The white panel was stamped with the stem from Fabulous Florets stamp set using Old Olive ink.  The blossom was stamped with Marina Mist ink on a scrap of white paper, cut out and layered over the stem with a dimensional.
A strip of white organza ribbon was gathered with a needle and thread and attached behind the white panel with sticky strip.
The olive green color is repeated along the left edge with a narrow strip of card stock.
Marina Mist patterned paper comes from the Patterns Designer Series paper stack, Subtles collection, and the card base is Marina Mist, also.
I chose the sentiment from the Whimsical Words stamp set, retired.  Two little pearls finish off the front of the card.

Here's a close-up of the blossom.

Inside the card is a narrow strip of the patterned paper.  This carries the color and pattern to the inside and adds a finishing touch to the card.

I enjoyed using this layout.  It's always nice to have extra thank you cards on hand.

Thanks for stopping by today!
