Memory Box Flourish Die Thank You

Today I am sharing a card I sent to my friend Joyce Mehrberg of Cards by the Sea using a die she gave me for my birthday.  It is the Quinn Flourish from Memory Box.  It is just the most delicate and intricate die, a great size and cuts so crisply.  I love it.  Joyce also helped arrange a wonderful birthday blog hop for me last week which totally blew me away.  This is just a little card to thank her for her thoughtfulness.

 Isn't it pretty in Aqua Mist and Dark Chocolate?  The script paper is Simply Jane from PTI on a Mega Mat Stack #3 diecut.  The embossing folder is from Provocraft called Cassie's Brocade.  I used a Spellbinder label and a PTI sentiment from Mat Stack #2 collection.  Now, about those rolled roses, another gift from Joyce, this time at Christmas time and are My Favorite Things rolled roses.  I have made quite a few felt roses with these dies, but this is the first time I tried them with cardstock.  I swiped the edges with ink before I rolled them and added a pearl to the centers.  I wrapped this card all up in bubble wrap and put it inside a padded envelope hoping those roses don't get too smashed.   I hope this card shows Joyce how much I love all the gifts she so carefully selected for me.

I am staring at this card right now, and I have to say it is even more gorgeous in person than in the photo. I love everything about it, especially the colors. It arrived all wrapped up, like a precious gift, which it is. I'm going to case this card, for sure.
