Lavender Thank You

I've been wanting to play with this set, Pretty Amazing. The large flower image coordinates with the Pretty Petals background. I need to send some thank you notes, and this was my first attempt. It didn't make the cut, in part because I don't want to have to color 20 ribbons, nor do I have that much White Taffeta ribbon.


The color is a bit off as my scanner still has attitude issues. Guess I'm going to have to dig out my owners manual and see what I can do to straighten it up! Color is Lavender Lace. I stamped the background in Lavender on Whisper White, tore off the bottom and stamped thank you in Lavender, on Lavender. The ribbon was White Taffeta that I dyed with a sponge and Lavender Lace Classic Ink. The flower image was stamped with Lavender Lace Craft Ink, them embossed with Hologram Highlights embossing powder. I'm so going to miss that! I'm ordering some Iridescent Ice this week, but I just don't think I will like it as much. Guess I may have to start mixing my own!?!


I will post the card later this week that made the cut. I will be making quite a few of it, and want to get the cards in the mail first. Also, will be back later this week with a Sunflower Seed (blog candy) for my first Blogaversary, which was the 15th. I'm a little slow on everything right now, but hoping to get back on track. Really hoping that Spring is arriving soon here in Nebraska-the winter has been a long one and I'm ready to see some GREEN outside!!!

Have a great week all!!

well, it was worth it to dye that one piece of ribbon, because the color is sooooooooo nice! i'll miss hologram highlights, too. hopefully, you'll get your new ice before i order next and see if you like it.

this card has a great layout. as usual.

Well, I think that it is very pretty. The ribbon dying was worth it! If you make another, be sure to post it pretty please???

(That last remark was mine...I hit the return key instead of shift....)
