Last Wednesday was Administrative Professional's Day and the staff in my school gave my co-worker and I a beautiful hydrangea plant. I had been mulling over an idea for my thank you card but had not been able to put it to paper yet as I was lacking inspiration for a layout. Well, thank goodness for the Sketch Challenge today...........
I created my own little hydrangea plant with one of the new mini punches from SU available May 1. I punched a bunch of the four petal flowers out of Pink Pirouette and then laid them down on my matt pack and pressed my embossing stylus into the center of them to give them some dimension. I added the dots in the center with a Pretty in Pink marker and then glued them to a small oval and a 3/4" circle of Pink Pirouette. The leaves come from the Little Leaves Sizzlit.
The card base is Pink Pirouette stamped on the edges with Vintage Vogue and the 4 squares are some dsp layered with Pretty in Pink. The center square is Certainly Celery and I stamped the sentiment from Tiny Tags in Garden Green. That panel is popped up with dimensionals. Lastly I added the pink taffeta ribbon.
I know, I should have a picture of the real plant. Trust me, it's beautiful. I intend to put it in the yard but we've got a frost warning for tonight so it's inside for the evening.
