Blossom Petals Thinking of You Card

I've had so much fun playing with the new Blossom Petals punch and coordinating stamp set.  I just can't get enough of them.  I designed a card-making class that uses the punch.  Even after finding all the ideas for those cards, I keep coming up with more ideas.  This one is a keeper:

This card is for my friend Barb who is recovering from knee replacement surgery.  While she was in surgery the doctors found an infection.  So they had to put in a temporary knee and let the infection heal.  In several weeks after the infection has cleared Barb will get her new knee.  I'm praying for her complete recovery.

The design for this card came from Dawn Griffith's blog.  I changed up the embossing folder, added the scallop trim border punch, and used a different sentiment.

Stamps: Build a Blossom, Trendy Trees
Paper: Baja Breeze, Whisper White, Springtime Vintage designer series paper
Ink: Baja Breeze
Accessories: Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dots textured impressions embossing folder, Scallop Trim Border punch, Blossom petals punch, 1/2" circle punch, dimensionals, 2-way glue pen, Dazzling Diamonds

My kids were occupied long enough this afternoon that I made several of these cards.  I changed the sentiment to one from the new stamp set Bring on the Cake that says, "Not just a year older, but a year better." I sent that to two of my customers, Kim and Sally, who are having birthdays this week.  Happy birthday, ladies!

Happy stamping!

Very lovely card Susan, can't wait until my punch and stamp set arrive so I can case this. I love the softness of this card. Glad you were doing the happy dance and that things are working out. TFS.
