CPS #106 and a Thank You card

Every new sketch at Card Positioning Systems blog is my new most favorite!!! So, of course, this week's is my favorite!!!
I love the swirl lines on the side. I love that when you look at a sketch you need to interpret this as you see it and I had fun hand cutting my little swirl or wave pieces of paper.
This view shows off the dimension of my flower. The flower layers are two sizes of punches. The clear button was glued to paper with the Aleene's Paper Glaze. I used the Paper Glaze because I knew it would dry clear and wouldn't show through the clear button. The dragonfly and the little greeting are both new stamps by my friend Kim Hughes from the Little Gal set for Cornish Heritage Farms.
I so love these papers by BasicGrey so I created this card with them. The flowers are cut out of one print. The rub-on greeting and the ribbon are both BasicGrey.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
