A sweet thank you

Stampin Up and Botanical Blooms
2 challenges in one here not that I'm very happy with my effort but have 4 hours to pack up for a 5 hour scrap (plus pizzas) & I haven't got the foggiest where any of my gear is (this is normal though).

Trudi from NZSU blog has challenged us to make something with a Sale-A-Bration set (SAB) & Janet from my SBS sisterhood has challenged us to make a card with no DSP or embossing & to use our stamps to make background paper - this is easy.

I've chosen Botanical Blooms as I love 2-step stamping & I needed to make a wee thank you card. There are 4 SAB sets again this year to earn for FREE - more details about this promotion can be seen HERE.

Stamp sets: Botanical Blooms, Short and Sweet
Paper: Apricot Appeal, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Whisper White
Ink: Apricot Appeal, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive
Other: Earth Elements markers, scallop edge punch, mat pack

This is really pretty. I haven't had a chance to play with this set yet, so it's nice to see it in use. The colors are wonderful and I love the addition of just a few scallops along the bottom edge.

This is really pretty Karen. You really inspire me to get my SU sets inked up. I have neglected them far too long.
