Embellished Thank You

Happy Monday! I finally got around to using some of my products from the Holiday Mini! Here you will see a peek at the 3-1/2" Scallop Tulle in Cherry Cobbler (a very teeny piece, cut free-hand into a circle), and one of the Designer Natural Buttons. 

This card actually began with a long, thin scrap of Comfort Cafe designer series paper and a stray 3/4" Circle punched from Summer Starfruit. Now, Summer Starfruit has not been my favorite new In Color so far! But last week for the PPA Challenge, I had to use it, and I must admit, it is growing on me! And, although one of the colors that coordinate with Comfort Cafe designer series paper are listed as Cajun Craze, I chose to use Cherry Cobbler, because it matched the tulle!

The "ribbon" is made by folding a long piece until I got the desired shape/size and then I hand-cut a little rounded portion where the button would go. I tied my button using two pieces of Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine. I free-hand cut the ends of my paper "ribbon" into points.

This ribbon and button sits on top of a Peek-A-Boo Frames window die cut from Natural Composition Specialty designer series paper that I ran through my Big Shot. The sentiment and stamp are from the Day Of Gratitude stamp set.
