Thank you Card

My best friend's mother-in-law needlepointed me the most ADORABLE bunny coaster set that you ever did see and I wanted to make her a Thank You note to show my appreciation.  I was SO excited when I was presented with the set!  I chose some background paper that says "Shower you with Love" that was crying out for Tilda holding an Umbrella.  I punched the bottom of the paper with a EK Success border punch for added texture.  I colored my image with Copic Markers, again matching paper to color of marker.  I had made these Rick-Rack flowers a while back and thought they would be a cute addition along with leave stick pins in place of actual leave embellishments.  It was missing something.  I had already sewn my contrasting yellow paper to the background paper using my Huscavena sewing machine but wanted another element.  Since I always follow the design rule of "three's" I added three blue buttons pulling the blue color of the background paper out.  You should see the rick-rack flowers in person0they are so sweet.  Love, Elle
