Stampin' Up! Timeless Tropical Thank You Card

Good Sunday morning. I hope your weekend has been peaceful and not chaotic. Yesterday I had company in for breakfast so I didn't have a chance to create a card but here is what I created for you today.

I was encouraged by my upline, Amy Koenders, to use the Polished Pink color (available 5/4/21) so I did! I also CASEd her card!! 

My card base is Basic White with a Polished Pink cardstock mat and a panel of True Love DSP. I used my Stitched So Sweetly dies for all of the die cuts. The flower is fussy cut from another pattern in the True Love series. I colored it with my Melon Mambo Light and Dark Stampin' Blends because I haven't ordered the Polished Pink Blends yet. I used Granny Apple Green for the leaves and Mango Melody for the center. 

For embellishments, I used one large Matte Black Dot. The ribbon is the 3/8" Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon (the supply item below is incorrectly labeled 5/8"). The sentiment is from the Timeless Tropical Stamp Set. 

For the inside I stamped a piece of Polished Pink cardstock with a sentiment from Happy Thoughts and adhered a strip of the DSP at the bottom.

I'm entering my card in these challenges:

Thank you for visiting today and I have no idea what tomorrow will bring. Maybe a mystery card? Come back to see, won't you? Pretty please with a pansy on top!
