Get Well Soon

This is a card I made for a special friend who has been very sick and had 2 surgeries. I hope it cheers her up.
All supplies are Stampin Up except the Polka Dots EF and the MS fern punch. 
CS:  Pool Party, Crumb Cake (Kraft), Early Espresso and Very Vanilla.  Spice Cake paper. I used the Sizzlets Lots of Tags die for my 2 tags.  Ink: Early Espresso.  Stamps used are Sincere Salutations, Vintage Vogue and Tiny Tags. The leaves are from the Bird Builder punch.  The flower is made from the Spice Cake paper with the Scallop Circle (3 layers) & Boho Blossom punches and finished it with an Antique Brad in the center.  I cut between each scallop to fluff up the petals.  I also sponged Pool Party ink around the sentiment circle and lightly stamped the flourish from Vintage Vogue around the edges with Pool Party ink.  I used the Chantilly Lace and Early Espresso 1/8" taffeta ribbon .  Thanks for stopping by my blog.  All comments are appreciated.

Sweet layout - My Sketch World

I completed another layout. This is another of my great-granddaughters. She turned 5 recently and has started Kindergarten.  She is so excited to be going to school with her big sister.  I had the first page done and needed to do a 2nd page with the 2 pictures.  I found the Sept. 1st sketch on My Sketch World and it was just right for the second page.
I used CTMH cardstock, pattern paper from my stach, rhinestone brads, prima flowers, and ribbon. The scallop square was cut on my Cricut (Elegant Edges) and the title was cut from Storybook. The leaves were done with SU Sizzix Little Leaves die and Martha Stewart fern punch. I think that covers everything.

1st Grade layout

I finally did a new layout.  This is my great-granddaughter when she was in the 1st grade. She just started 3rd grade this year.  Her younger sister started kindergarten, so there will be more layouts to do.
I used all Basic Grey except for the pink stripe (K& Co.). Martha Stewart border punches.  I used my new Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge for the the titles and scallop circle.  The bling is from Michael's.
