Pretty floral thank you card using Straight From the Nest

Hello, friends!!

What a crazy week I am having! I have projects everywhere this week and all I have felt like I have done is take pictures of projects and upload them to my computer...then to photobucket...then to blogger. A blogger's work is never done ;-)

Anyway, today's card is made with Straight From The Nest. I used the same flower that I used earlier in the week over at Hallmark Ladybugs. I just did not cut all of the pieces and I cut them smaller....2" to be exact! I also cut the leaves at 1 1/2".


The paper is from American Crafts 'Botanical' line. It is super pretty!


The sentiment is from Close To My Heart...as is the ribbon.


Thanks so much for stopping by! Make sure you check out my last post over at Hallmark Ladybugs today by clicking here==> Hallmark Ladybugs. While you are there make sure you leave a comment, so you can be entered to win a 'you pick one' cartridge. I will be drawing a winner on Friday!

Have a great day!!

Gee this is pretty. The combination of the soft pink and soft green is sonderful. I have the CTMH stamp, but not the Straight from the Nest cartridge. However, I think I can make something close. You build my confidence!
