Flower wreath thank you card

Thursday David asked me to create a card for the retiring executive assistant of the college. I created a more basic version of this card and liked the idea so much I had to revisit it. It's probably not a new technique to anyone but me -- I drew a circle on the Whisper White cardstock and then stamped the images around it. I really like this look, I'll be looking for more stamps of this type in the future to keep refining the look.

As you probably can tell from the last few posts I bought me some patterned paper during the big buy 3 get 1 free sale. I am loving all these great papers. For this card I used a bit of the Tea Party Designer Series Paper. I am anxiously awaiting the new catalog and the new designer series paper choices!

Duh, I also forgot to mention that the sketch for this card is a design from Monday Mojo . A great place to get a little inspiration!

The details:
Cardstock: Certainly Celery and Almost Amethyst
Patterned Paper: Tea Party Designer Series Paper
Stamp: Pocket Silhouettes
Rubon: Memory Makers
Ink: Certainly Celery and Almost Amethyst
Accessories: White Dots Colorbok

Thanks for looking and yes HE stamps!
