Lotus Blossom Thanks

I just got a package with some of my wish items from the Spring catalog- the berry basket and Crazy about you bundle. My butterfly dies are on back order but I just got so excited about my stuff I had to just sit and get a card done.  This is one I made as thank you for my customers who made a purchase this month.  The base card is whisper white.  I took a  1 1/2 inch strip of Calypso coral and ran it through the woodgrain embossing folder.  I used my new Hello You diecut thanks in Lost Lagoon.  I used the left over dryer sheets underneath the cardstock to get the chads out lickety split! Took a 1/4 inch DSP from Moonlight paper pack to an extra interest.  Stamped the Lotus - first Strawberry Slush, then Calypso Coral then lastly Pumpkin Pie.  I tried a bunch of different color combos before settling on this one.  The stem is also Lost Lagoon- stamped off the solid line before stamping then the mottled stem in full strength ink on top.  Used left over 1/2 inch strips of Lost Lagoon stamped with So Much from Crazy about You set  to complete the thanks in Blackberry Bliss to repeat the color from the DSP and a pretty simple mod looking card.  Love It!
