Springtime in Primrose

Howdy, I wanted to share another Thank You card I made with the Primrose collection by Bo Bunny. I stopped by a few challenge sites to get some inspiration.  I used the same pattern papers in the same sequence.  I just added different paper blossoms, and different ribbon.  {smile}
I stopped by a new to me craft challenge site: Paper Craft Crew Challenge.  Their current challenge is a sketch.  Their sketch is easy to use.  I flipped the sketch upside down.

I just love the current challenge over @ Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge, Spring/Easter theme.

And one last final stop, is Word Art Wednesday.  Their current challenge is: Anything Goes & Family Friendly.  

and here is what I made:

Recipe:  a typical A2 card (5 1/2" x 4 1/4").  I used kraft card stock as the card base.  I love this soft, neutral color.  I used 3 of the pattern papers from the Primrose collection by Bo Bunny.  I just love the soft, innocent colors: spring green, warm vanilla, and a sweet pink.  The polka dot, and honey comb patterns add a sweet vintage, shabby chic appearance.
The floral pattern paper and the green honey comb pattern paper were machine stitched together.  I did a purposefully sloppy double border stitch.  
I used the pink trefoil pattern paper as middle stripe.  I wrapped white cotton trim, and this beautiful brown check ribbon around the pink trefoil pattern strip.  I machine stitched them to the paper.
My circle piece is actually a 2 1/2" circle layered onto a paper doily.  I just love these delicate doilies from Stampin' Up!.  
I stamped my sentiment onto a decorative label piece.  Instead of a button, I used a bow for my other circle element.  I thought it added a special softness, and femininity.
I added a white clay bee, for the small circle element on the opposite side of the large circle element.  
I also jazzed up my large circle element.  {smile}  I stamped several leaf trios, into two green inks.  I added a larger mint green blossom, as my main blossom.  I tucked 2 tiny pink rose buds at the top of the main blossom.  I added a pink rose and a brown blossom to the lower left of the main mint blossom.  
And finally, I added a trio of flat back half pearls.

Wow, this is simply beautiful, Sharon! I love all the textures and elements and I'm so jealous because I try for the entire "shabby chic" feel which I think your card has and i just fail miserably! Thanks for joining us at the Paper Craft Crew this week with this beautiful card! Crystal, DT

What a beautiful card! I love the soft pastel color palette and the beautiful use of ribbon and eyelet! It's beautifully composed, too! Thanks so much for sharing with us at Really Reasonable Ribbon Spring/Easter challenge!
