Zoe Thinking of You

This thank you card was made for a friend of ours in Wyoming using Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #121 and combining it with ColorMyHeart Color Dare #155.  Couldn't wait to use the Zoe paperpak after my return from Wyoming; but was delayed because I had computer problems that I had to resolve before getting back to my card addiction.  

The flowers were all stamped, and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder to pop against the soft tones of the Zoe paper.  Flowers were adhered with 3D Thin Foam Tape at different levels. Edges of card panels were distressed with leaf green ink, with the smaller panel lifted with 3D Thin Foam Tape.  The background Green Panel was embossed with a Dot Folder.  Sentiment was stamped in Whisper.  Embellishments added to the Glacier Flower, and two flowers on the Sentiment corners. 

The inside was stamped with Flowers, layering them and another Sentiment "Thank You."  Personal note will be added.

Color Dare:  Today we are daring you to use the colors from the Brand New, Hot-off-the-Press, paper pack, Zoe!

I love how you cut out the arrows on the bottom of the paper and also decorated the inside of the card!
