You're just the best

Color Throwdown is having a party!!!!!! 100 weeks of fun inspiration, which is just plain old fun if you ask me. Here is the the colors of the week
I combined this with the Stamp TV sketch
And came up with this fun card
How wonderful is this? I really liked the way this beauty came out. I used blooming blossoms from PTI along with the fun wood grain impression plate. I adore this plate and can't wait to add the woodgrain set to my collection!
I am so very behind in my thank you cards. I figured this sentiment would work well for that as well since I am getting a tad tired of everything saying thank you all the time LOL!
It is hard to see, but I have three buttons tied around the bow. It is such a fun way to accent the ribbon. Also, did you notice the flower buttons? They came in with my buttons from PTI. Isn't that great? You just never know what treasures you are going to find when you start looking at the bag of buttons.
Edited to add.... I use a big shot from SU for all of my cutting, embossing and impression plate work. It is super easy and I get good results. From what I understand the cuttle bug works great as well. Hope that helps!
It's a good life!

Love your blog.

What machine do you use the impression plate through? I have a Cuttlebug and am wondering if I could get as nice of results as you do.
