Stripe and Floral Thanks Note Card

I am working on notecards for a different project.

Kitchen countertop got installed yesterday – it looks like a kitchen. No running water yet (that is scheduled for TODAY). I was so worried about the counter – I selected it from a 6 x 6 inch sample. Had nightmares about it Sunday night – “what if I chose WRONG? WHAT IF I DON’T LIKE IT??” All is good. I am happy with how it turned out.

Supplies: Stamp – Stampin’ Up!, paper – Stampin’ Up! Calypso Coral, Kaleidoscope DSP, Pool Party, So Saffron, ink – Hero Arts Unicorn, die – Taylored Expressions, punches – All Night Media (small flower), Fiskars (large flower), Stampin’ Up! (dots), embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder white.
