A Two-fer Card


 I combined the OWH Sketch challenge #236 along with the Mid-Month Throwdown - "gratitude" and came up with this card. I used Snippets of 2 shades of grey textured cardstock, along with some pink and cranberry. The large flowers were done with a PB stamp and fussy cut and popped up on the circles. The sentiment is retired SU! and the mini flowers were done with a SU! punch. This went together pretty quickly once I fussy cut the flowers :)

I'm also entering this over at the Snippets Playground #138 since I used snippets to put this together.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
