Pink and Brown - a favorite of mine

This is a card that I made for my wonderful friend Lois, thanking her for a special deed!. Lois, if you are looking at this - the check's in the mail!! I got the inspiration from a card that Lauren did as a punched challenge. The leaves and stem are stamped first and then the flowers are punched out at random so that the background (pink) shows through. Thanks, Lauren, I love this idea. I used SU Close to Cocoa; Whisper White; and the paper set Berry Bliss. The saying and leaf stems are from Best Blossoms and I used the key tag punch from SU. For the back of the saying I just cut a rectangle from Close to Cocoa and then rounded the edges myself. The ribbon (I think) is a retired one from SU. The pearls on both the pink flower and the tiny flowers (hard to see in this photo) are from Target's dollar bin (Lot's of scrapbooking stuff there right now for $1) and the large flower punch is Martha Stewart and the smaller flowers are from the dollar bin at Michaels. Gotta love these dollar bins except you do tend to spend a lot there! LOL.
