Miss you!

   Hello!  Hope you are enjoying your weekend! :)  I have a simple card to share with you today.  I made it for my very sweet Grandma.  She is 95 and as spunky as they come!  She has been on my mind lately and I am missing her so I thought I would send you a little note in the mail to let her know. :)  She likes flowers so I chose one of my new favorite stamp sets Everything Eleanor and got busy!  Here is the card I made for her:

 The flowers are stamped in three shades of pink and then fussy cut.  (Did you know that is what it is called when you hand cut something small with lots of details?!)   They are mounted on layers from the Labels Framelits Collection and I curled up the egdes to give them a more 3d look. The sentiment stamp is matted and raised up off the card using dimensionals and the flowers each have a pearl center. I ran the background and smallest framelit layer through the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.

Stamps: Everything Eleanor  and Lacey and Lovely
Paper:Wisteria Wonder, Pretty in Pink, Gumball Green and Whisper White
Ink: Pretty in Pink, Melon Mambo and Early Espresso
Extras: Labels Framelits, Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder, Large Oval punch, Scallop Oval punch, Dimensionals and Basic Pearls

*The die I used for the leaves is retired but could be substituted  with the leaves from the Bird Builder punch or Little Leaves Sizzlets die.

I hope that you enjoy your day today to the fullest!  I will be back soonest with more to share!
