Button Flower Thank You Card

Good Afternoon! We woke up to thunderstorms this morning in Iowa. But now the sun is peeking through and its so nice to see how fresh everything looks after a rainstorm. Here is another Thank You card made with a few different elements. I enjoyed working with the bright colors and especially on this rainy day, it was nice to work with fresh colors. 

The flower stamp came from SU!'s All the Best set. It was  stamped on white cardstock with fuschia ink. The flowers were then cut out and the orange buttons were sewed onto the flowers with yellow thread. I brushed some grass green ink onto the green paper before cutting "grass" onto the paper. I also cut out leaves from the same green paper and attached it to green stems, which I then attached to the flowers. The ribbon is from Offray and onto the ribbon I attached the sentiment from SU! with some metallic turquoise brads.  And lastly I added Crystal Stickles onto the flowers which really helped to pop out the flowers.

This was such a fun card to make. I love working with bright colors, somehow it is really satisfying. I painted our laundry closet bright pink because I wanted to see a little happiness when I opened the closet :) You can't really see much pink when you open the closet door, but its still there and makes laundry a little more exciting :)  Hope all of you are well. 
Thanks for stopping by!
