What's Your Favorite?

Isn't it neat hearing what everyone's favorites are of the new releases? I love that everyone has her/his own fave. Me? I LOVE these flowers from Thankful Blossoms. They're so pretty and modern with those delicious swirls and dots. Here, I stamped the large and small open flowers with black ink (Palette) and colored with Copic markers. I layered a couple of papers from Scribble Scrabble's Circus Baby line, the pink one edged with scallops (using a corner rounder).
The sizable verses in this set are great for taking center stage. I stamped "Your thoughtfulness touched my heart" on a piece of celery card stock and rounded the corners. I set a couple of black eyelets to thread my ribbon, and adhered with dimensionals. I finished it off with some little black dots in the scallops for visual weight.
