Another Thank You Card

These are the flowers cut from the Tim Holtz "Tattered Flowers" Die.  I really use this die a lot.   I placed three of the same flowers together to show you which flower I used for this card. 

This is my second Thank You card for the BD gift I am preparing.  The background paper is from Basic Grey and was embossed with the Cuttlebug "Seeing Spots" embossing folder.  The striped dp is from Making Memories pad.  Two punched Martha Stewart borders (Scallop and 3 dots) were added behind the striped dp.  I only left two of the dots showing because I wanted a narrow black border.  The black flourish is from a package of K&Company "Pillow Stickers".  The laser cut corners are from my stash that I never wanted to use because they are so pretty.

To create the flower, I added some yellow reinker mixed with water to a spray bottle and sprayed them on the Teflon Sheet. These flowers were cut out of a brown paper grocery bag.   They were wadded up in a ball then pulled apart and dried with the heat gun.  I then used a sponge dauber to add orange to the petals. Three flowers were layered and a corduroy brad added to the center.  The sentiment is from the JustRight "You Inspire Me" stamp set and it was cut out with a JustRite tag Nestability.  A brad was added in the hole then attached with a dimensional.  

All the products in bold letters can be purchased from Joan's Gardens.
