Simply Thank You

Busy, busy, busy.  But I imagine you are too!  So, this post will be a bit short, and to the point.  I will have more to share soon.  {smile}
For those who have been waiting on my Explosion Box Card, ugh.  That project has been push to the back burner.   Not that I don't want to make this project.  I am just second guessing my products for this year's Spring Craft fair.  Sorry.  I hope to either finish it, or make more.  {smile}
I need to make a few more items for my Etsy shop, here.  So, I broke out some beautiful pattern paper from Poland: Lemon Craft: Forget Me Not.  I used the current sketch from Mojo Monday.

and here is what I made:


here is the recipe:  I used Lagoon card stock by Stampin' Up! for the card base.  Love this color of blue, and I think it really works well with the blue blossoms on the pattern paper.  I adhered the pattern paper of forget me not blossoms and white music scores to the same size whisper white card stock, by Stampin' Up!.  I then added a simple machine stitch border to this paper.  I wrapped a strip of gold satin ribbon around this panel and adhered it to the front of the card.
The smaller/focal panel was created with a different pattern paper.  I matted this paper onto a pool party card stock, by Stampin' Up!.  I added a simple machine stitch border to this panel, also.  
I had a left over canvas tag on my craft table, and a scrap piece of a thin cream crochet trim, so I sewn them together. {smile}
For the blossom, it is actually made from Very Vanilla satin ribbon, by Stampin' Up!  It is twisted and tucked.  I added two card stock leaves to this blossom.  I hot glued the blossom to the canvas tag.  I tied a multi-loop bow with pool party seam binding, by Stampin' Up!.  I added a short length of crochet trim behind the bow and tied to the tag with a thin piece of white tulle.  I used the tulle to tie the white vintage button, from Paper Trey Ink.
The banner piece was made with a 1/2" short piece of shimmer white card stock, by Stampin' Up!.  I used the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set, and inked with Soft Suede classic ink, both by Stampin' Up!.
And to give my card its finishing touch, I added a trio of marshmallow white faucet sequins.
Thank you for looking.  I am heading back into my craft room, to work with some beautiful pattern paper from American Crafts.  It's not a company I work with, a lot.  But they have this gorgeous pattern paper I am anxious to work with.  {smile}
