You will need a lot of patience to fussy cut this beauty of a flower from the new Perfectly Pencilled DSP from Stampin' Up! but I promise you it is totally worth it.

This flower is so lovely so I've kept true to my style and have created a simple design for this thank you  note.

I have used the Sending Smiles stamp set to add the sentiment 'A note of thanks' in the colour Evening Evergreen

I can't wait to have a play with this stamp set, I'm sharing it with you as there are also some great sentiments in a lovely modern font that won't distract from your card design.

To colour the flower I used both the light and dark Stampin' Blends in So SaffronPink Pirouette and Soft Succulent 

Pink Pirouette retired several years ago - if you don't have this in your stash, you could use a Blushing Bride ink pad with a blender pen.

I've added some of the lovely new In Colour Opal Rounds in Pale Papaya, Polished Pink and Soft Succulent.
