So Thoughtful...

Happy Saturday everyone! Thanks for the well wishes yesterday on my banking situation. I *think* it is all worked out now as far as new accounts and getting my online places (i.e. stamping shopping sites..lol) all updated. :)

So, today's card is for my husbands boss.  She went to the Philippines last month and brought me back this fabulous little necklace. I thought it was so very sweet of her, so this is the card I made for her. She loves my cards {blushing} and so it makes me feel so happy to make one for her. I hope she likes this one..I sure do! I used the colors from this week's Off The Wall Craftiness challenge and am so in love with them. I'll be using them again, for sure. I love how the colors just make each other pop that much more. Really cool. The only thing is that I can NEVER get Early Espresso to photograph properly..not sure what I am doing wrong. :(

So, here are the challenge colors:





And here is my card:


I hope you like it. I FINALLY bought Great Friend from Verve and let me tell you..those flowers are SUPER easy to cut out. I think that's what took me so long t buy it. Even though I loved it, I hate cutting things out. These babies cut out like butter. Really cool. I also used a couple of LOVELY Papertrey stamps. I used Fancy Flourishes for the little swirl behind the flower and Signature Greetings for the sentiment. I just love those two sets...so very versatile!

Ok, well that's it from me. I hope you have a great Saturday. Come back tomorrow for my Play Date Cafe card. :)


Stamps: Great Friend (Verve); Signature Greetings, Fancy Flourishes (papertrey)
Card Stock: White (papertrey); Jolly HOliday dsp, Early Espresso (stampin up)
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie (stampin up)
Extras: Bling from want2scrap, buttons and grosgrain (Papertrey)
