Polka Dot Petal Thanks

I've been away from my stamping table for a couple of weeks, so I decided to take advantage of a bit of nap time and get some stamping done.  My little guy was so excited to help, so he got out his ink pads and created while I did.  It's fun to pass on my love of stamping with my children.

I love participating in color challenges because they help get my creative juices flowing.  Today's color challenge comes from ColourQ and the colors are Strawberry Slush, Coastal Cabana, Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake (Kraft), and White.  I decided that this would be a great combo to use some new stamps on, so I chose the Petal Potpourri set for my flower and the new Crazy About You  set for my greeting.  I'm still trying to be better about expressing my thanks, so I make this a thank you card.  I figure if most of my cards have thank you on them, then I'll be reminded to actually use some of them :)

I stamped my flower in Strawberry Slush and added a 1/4" hole punch from Coastal Cabana to help tie it into my background.  I used a Stampin' Dimensional to pop it off the Crumb Cake strip (with the greeting stamped in Chocolate Chip), polka dot paper from the Backgrounds DSP stack, Chocolate Chip strip, and finally the Coastal Cabana card base that I textured with the Polka Dot embossing folder.  Check back to see more card ideas with the new Occasions stamp sets!
