Thank You Card For All Of You - In Lemon & Lime

With Paper Flourish being just a brand new blog, I've been thrilled to have you all visit and comment. It's also been fun to explore all your blogs and be inspired... such talent and innovative ideas!

This card is my Thank You to all of you in blog land who love paper crafts, cards and ink and who have given me such a warm welcome and continue to inspire me. The digi image is from the wonderfully talented Chris at The Sketching Stamper.

I double layered some of the flowers, the heart and the vase. Flowers and gold highlights on the vase are coloured with Twinkling H2O's. The flower centres are gold Kindyglitz and the edged borders are done with the Fiskars threading water punch.

This is also my entry for some great card challenges -

Colour Create - Lemon & Lime
I even managed to include the optional flowers they asked for.
