This past week has been very exciting and challenging for me. I started a new job this past week and have been very busy acclimating to my new role and learning the ropes of a new job. I have been very fortunate to have met a group of awesome people who have been so helpful with my transition. I wanted to make a card for a specific individual who has really gone out of her way to help me succeed. I am very thankful and grateful for all of her help. This is a simple A2 card that I made using a stamping up stamp, Apothercary Art. I stamped the image with Cherry Cobbler ink on to Stampin Up's Very Vanilla cardstock. I had to hand cut the stamp out because I ordered the labels die and it's on it's way. I added a little of stickles to the leaves in patina for some sparkle. It really doesnt show up in the picture but it looks really pretty. The border is a Martha Stewart punch and I layered ribbon on top of it and tied a bow at the end. I really like how the bow came out, I'm learning! I added some primas mini roses and some flower brads from my stash. The background paper is from Stampin Up's Love Letter stack. I inked all the edges of my paper and label with Tim Holtz distress ink in Barn Door. I kept the scheme monochromatic and layout simple. This was fun to make. I hope she likes this. Thank you for stopping by and thanks so much for the wonderful comments!

I plan to enter this card into the following challenges:
 Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #61: monochromatic magic
