Babies & Botanicals

Hello all! Hope your day is going well! Thought I'd share a card using some more goodies from the latest Papertrey Ink release, Background Basics: Botanicals and Outlines Alphabet... This card utilizes a simple and very common layout, but yet I gave it a fun uniqueness by adding a few properly placed details. First off, the rectangles were stamped using three of the Background Basics: Botanicals images (in Sweet Blush). Attach a Dark Chocolate button, strung with white silk ribbon.
Gave the sentiment (stamped using Outlines Alphabet) some dimension by cutting out and popping up a couple of the letters. Then finished the card off with a double ribbon tab, using Dark Chocolate grosgrain and more of that wonderful silk ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by today, hope you have a good one!
