Grateful (and pretty!) in Pink

Hello again to all of my stamping friends!

If you are a teacher, a student, or have any connection to schools, today is an exciting day for you... the last day of school before a well-deserved and much-anticipated Spring Break!  I can remember the feeling of the last day before a vacation period very well.  The atmosphere is super-charged with excitement and anticipation.  Everyone's in a great mood and energy abounds.  

I'm enjoying a different kind of excitement today.... tonight is my annual Bunco Night and I'm gearing up to serve pizza and salad to 12 stampers, make 2 fun cards, and then enjoy playing Bunco for tons of prizes.  If you aren't playing with us tonight, you should definitely try to join us next year.  Everyone goes home with a nice prize!  

As I mentioned on Monday, this is Grateful Bunch week, so of course I've got another card for you that showcases this great set.  Here it is again, "in-the-pink," thanks to Mary Peterson, who's one of the talented stampers in my downline.

Didn't Mary do a wonderful job with this card?  The colors she used are Blushing Bride, and Wild Wasabi on the panel of Whisper White.  The white panel is layered over Pink Pirouette and Wild Wasabi panels.  The flowers are stamped in Blushing Bride on Pink Pirouette card stock, then punched out with the coordinating Blossom Bunch Punch.  What makes these flowers really stand out is the way Mary layered three of them in the three different sizes, then popped them up on dimensionals.  The tiny pearls give a sweet feminine accent to the flower centers.  Thanks, Mary, for such a beautiful swap card!

If you are heading off for a spring break adventure, safe travels!  
Hugs and happiness!
