Springtime Thank Yous

The gals in our office are always very sweet at birthday time. They always find a vase of flowers, a balloon, or in my case a basket of plants that make the day special. This year it was a beautiful mixture of green plants, and tiny, non-sneeze inducing flowers.

They also chipped in to get me a gift card for Cheesecake Factory. Yum! Can't wait to use that one. I wanted to make thank you cards that were just as special. I found some sheets of Graphic 45 paper I had picked up that were spring-y and kind of festive that I thought might do the trick. They are all from the Once Upon a Springtime Collection.

I really did not do a lot to put these together. The centers of the frames actually came out to be used as embellishments. I chose to mix and match with other frames and then raise the centers off of the card with foam tape squares. I inked edges with CM's brown chalk ink and added a Bo Bunny Tutu dots paper rectangle with the sentiment stamped to finish them off.

As quick and simple as these were to put together, I really like the look of them.

Those are really pretty. I love when cards are easy to assemble and turn out nice.

Gorgeous cards! I really like that Graphic 45 paper and will have to keep a weather eye out for it. Happy belated birthday! One of these days I will get to eat lunch at the Cheesecake factory lol.
