Delicate Thank You

I had a number of false starts trying to use The Flower Challenge's Guest Designer, Therese's, beautiful card. I enjoyed her video, and learnt a lot from it.
My ideas didn't coalesce until I managed to combine some of her techniques with the sketch from Fusion's current challenge, 'Pretty in Pink'.
I've used elements from both the sketch and the image in this challenge, but haven't followed either exactly. I wanted to use Therese's ombre technique for the sentiment, but didn't have a die cut small enough for the stamp, so sponged card in an ombre style and then cut the banner from it (if you look closely, you can see a little bit of what I was trying for!).

Made Using:
Paper: Stampin' Up Whisper White, Rosie's Vellum and Foil pad (In Style)
Ink: Stampin' Up's Blackberry Bliss, Sweet Sugarplum and Blushing Bride
Other: Stampin' Up copper embossing powder, Banner punch, Thoughtful Banners stamps and Florish Thinlits, and Francheville Adhesive Rhinestones


  1. Wow wonderful inspiration from Therese's card at The Flower Challenge. Absolutely beautiful. Aileen DT

  2. Beautiful card! I have yet to try vellum, I love the look. Looks perfect.

  3. Oh so gorgeous and fun, love how you have created the look of all those layers and focused everything to the centre of the design!

  4. Love all that gold - the close ups are total eye candy letting me soak up all the details! Wonderful!
