Stampin' Up! Alphabest Beautiful Thistle for the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Here is what I created for our hop today...

Can you guess our theme?

Did you guess correctly?

The "spring" is stamped from the Alphabest Stamp Set. The thistles and sentiment are from the Beautiful Thistle Stamp Set. I stamped it all in Memento Tuxedo Black after I had sponged the Very Vanilla panel with Pool Party, So Saffron and Mango Melody.

For the inside...

I colored the little thistle with my light and dark Gorgeous Grape and Old Olive Stampin' Blends. 

The strip at the bottom was cut from the top of the front panel.
