thank you

Happy Monday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. We had such a beautiful day here in Pittsburgh. The temps were mild and I noticed that our tulips are up about 2 inches. My hubby is already thinking about spraying them with something to repel the deer. They love to munch the new growth. He planted lots of new ones last fall so I want to see them produce a flower.

Well, my card for today is one I created for the clean and simple challenge on Splitcoaststampers. I have such trouble with this type of card because I always want to add layers. But, I liked the colors they wanted us to use and I needed a quick thank you card.

I started my card by embossing a Spellbinders labels 4 die. I stamped my dogwood image in rich razzleberry ink.

My image and sentiment are from the dogwood blossoms set by Marks Finest Papers. Of course I needed some ribbon so I took my rich razzleberry ribbon and ruched it on the card front. Punched a few butterflies with a Martha Stewart punch to complete my card.

Here a few other challenges for this card:
1.  The crazy challenge has an anything goes. Love those challenges.
2.  The Cutie Pie challenge has a flowers challenge. I stamped a dogwood blossom on my card.
3.  Crafty Catz wants us to use something with a "B". I used some punched butterflies.

Well it's late and time to dim the lights in charmed life land for another day. So until next time .........God bless.
