Good Morning.   I hope this post finds you well.  I have been busy crafting, and getting things listed and weighted for my Etsy shop.  Sorry I haven't posted this week.
If you don't know, I work in a local hospital.  And recently our department has needed some help from the nurses.  So, in my usual fashion, I made them some cupcakes and a card {smile}.
The cupcakes were a lemon cake with a red raspberry whipped icing.  I was focused on pink lemonade, so that is where I got my inspiration and their name {smile}.
But, a 'gift' isn't complete without a card.  So, here is what I whipped up.  I wanted something simple but with some visual interest.

The card base is Ocean Tides cardstock by Paper Trey Ink.  They make a good heavy card stock, like Stampin' Up!.  The black and cream text pattern paper is a retired piece from Stampin' Up!  I can't remember what the name of the DSP is, but it is at least 2-3 years old.  The floral pattern paper is from Bazzill.  Believe it or not.  I love the sweet, simple floral design in stripes.
I tied some gold bakers twine thru the back of a Bo Bunny button and added it to the left of my sentiment banner.  I inked the sentiment in basic black classic ink and stamped on a very vanilla piece of card stock; both from Stampin' Up!  The stamp was a free gift from Verve.  So, I don't know if you can 'buy' the stamp.  I love the mix of font and the simple sentiment.
Thank you for stopping by.  Don't forget, I have blog candy available to 'win'!  Take care.
