Calypso Thanks

I love the sketch challenge at Create with Connie & Mary this week - very CAS!  And here's my submission.



I decided to use the flowers from the Pop-Up Posies designer kit, which led me to a Calypso Coral and Pool Party color combo.

I spritzed the flowers with water and scrunched them up.  Once they were dry I spritzed them again with Calypso Coral ink in the color spritzer before using a brad to join all the individual flowers together.  The Very Vanilla banner was run through the Big Shot with the Honeycomb EF then tied with some baker's twine.  A very subtle, tone-on-tone "thank you" in the bottom right hand corner finishes off the card.




Thanks for looking.

Products used (all Stampin' Up!):

Stamps:  Made for You
Cardstock:  Calypso Coral; Pool Party; Very Vanilla
Ink:  Calypso Coral
Accessories:  Honeycomb EF; Calypso Coral marker; color spritzer; Calypso Coral Baker's Twine; Pop-Up Posies Kit; 2011-13 In Color Brad

Cheers
Karren
