Avery Elle: Thanks a Bunch

I can't believe it's almost the end of January!  I love winter, but the snow and cold this week here in the DC/Northern Virginia area is making me crave sun and flowers:)  It's a good thing I have all the fun Spring sets from Avery Elle to play with like this one, Thanks a Bunch!  Love the two step stamping in this one:)


Lately, I've been very into the pink/gold thing, so why fight it?  I stamped a border of flowers for the left side and fussy cut them.  I layered them over a diagonally cut piece of metallic gold card stock.  (Since you asked, this gold card stock is from Michael's.  It's 12X12 and sold in sheets.  This is the best shiny gold  card stock I've been able to find! It does have a mirror finish but it's hard to show here.)



The finishing touch were some matching gold and rose pink sequins.  The flourish sentiment is from Oh Happy Day.


Thanks for stopping in and checking out my card!  Don't forget to click over to Heather's blog to see the beautiful card she has to share!  

Mahalo and Aloha,
