Thank you for your kindness

It's time for the monthly Papertrey Ink blog hop!  I made a pair of thank you cards, pulling the colors and the flowers from the summery inspiration photo.








I went for a clean and simple style.  After struggling to use all the colors on one card, I decided to do a white-on-white base using embossed texture and do a simple grouping of flowers in one color on each card.  I really like the elegant result!  The flowers are crumpled to add a little dimension.

Stamps:  Garden of Life, Turning a New Leaf, Iconic Images (Papertrey Ink) 
Paper:  White, Melon Berry, Harvest Gold, Simply Chartreuse (Papertrey Ink)
Ink:  Berry Sorbet, Summer Sunrise, Simply Chartreuse (Papertrey Ink);Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Misc:  Polka Dots embossing folder (Cuttlebug); 3/4" square punch (EK Success)
