Thank you spring...

Today it's almost spring-like! The sun is shining, the snow is melting, and the air is warmer. My thermometer says 48 - but I think it's more like 30. The sun is just nice and warm! I am beginning to think that Spring is really going to make it here!
I kept this one real clean and simple again....I stamped the polka dots in So Saffron on So Saffron (from Polka Dot Basics, PTI), then die cut that shape with a nestie. The floral circle image is stamped with Old Olive ink on Old Olive cardstock, using one of the images from Circle Circus. I stamped this again on a patterned piece of paper from the Welcome Neighbor pattern pack and cut out on single little flower that got adhered over the top of it's counterpart on the Old Olive circle. (Did you know you can earn this FREE with a $50 purchase or with a qualifying workshop??? It's an awesome pack of paper btw!) I added a So Saffron button from the Button Latte collection. I think it was just the jazz this card needed.
I used my horizontal punch to punch slots in the die cut piece so I could slip the Old Olive ribbon thru - satin ribbon that is (my new fave! have you noticed?) I used the same punch to make a small slit in the crease of the card for the ribbon to wind all the way around....Nifty!
To complete the card, I stamped the Thank You sentiment in Melon Mambo to match the little flower. It tied the card all together just the way I imagined....I love whent that happens.
This was a quick one to put together!
