Inspiration that WON'T go away!

Hi Blog Friends!


I know you thought I wouldn't post anything more this week, BUT I JUST HAD TO!
I have been working on this post for next week
 & I thought you'd like to see it TODAY, in-particular!

I've seen this "technique" done on the web several times over as of late, but when my daughter received a gift from my "DEAREST, BESTEST FRIEND" in the WHOLE-WIDE WORLD, I just couldn't help myself but use her gift for inspiration! 

This is what she sent our daughter:
 A change purse! 
I had taken our daughter out to find a wallet with a change purse built-in, but we could only find large wallets. Just not our daughters style! My friend didn't even know! This little coin purse will do the trick & it's soooo pretty too! Our daughter is quite pleased with her gift. So, of course, we must send a Thank You Card!

Here's what I made!
I paired them up so you could see how they match, such inspiration!

I used Flourishes- Always Blooming, a Sam Pickard Design & Sentimental Favorites!

Along with Flourishes- Classic Frames Template Dies.

The inside is quite simple, giving you lots of space to write a proper "Thank You" note!

Don't forget to make a matching envelope!
Below I will give you the Gelatos & supplies I used to make this card.
 It's quite simple to make, & it has a big impact!
If you have any questions, just ask away!

Have a wonderful weekend! 

Supplies not mentioned above: 
Gelatos- Snow Cone, Watermelon, Coconut, Margerita Mix, Mango, & Lime
Water Color Paper
Painters Tape
Distress Marker- Picket Fence
Memento Ink
Linen Thread
3- Silver Brads
