A blog hop wouldn't be complete without a bit of inspiration, so here are a few things I created using products from My Mind's Eye {you can pick up the supplies in the AWDML Store}:

Thank You Flourish Card:




Call Me Card:


Here's how to create those flowers for the card:
Cut your patterned paper into flower shapes in three varying sizes. {One large flower, three medium flowers, and three small flowers.}


Stack the small flowers on the medium flowers. Place one set {small and medium flower} on the largest flower cut so you now have three stacks.



Place a brad at the center of each flower stack to hold it together. Curl and fluff the various petals until you get the desired look.


Adhere the flowers and finish your card off with a sentiment.



Remember The Moments Card Set:



Don't forget to bundle your card set up with some twine!


Thanks so much for hopping along {be sure to go to Amarilys' blog next!}...and good luck!
