Scarlet Thanks

When I saw that this week's SCS Featured Stamper Challenge was Holly (aka Toy on SCS), I knew I had to make a card. Her gallery is one of my all-time favorites and I just love her style. I picked this card to CASE (copy & share with everyone) because I just love the tabs and brads and the color combination. Here are my modifications:
1. I used designer paper.
2. I replaced the top square panel with flowers.
3. I used different stamps.

I started by stamping French Flair in Chocolate Chip on Chocolate Chip cardstock. Then, without reinking I did a second generation stamp on the Basic Grey Scarlet's Letter paper. (Isn't it dee-lish? Cindy still has some available on her Basic Grey share if you hurry!). Next I stamped the scroll from Carte Postale and the Thanks from Circle of Friendship in Chocolate Chip on Scarlet's Letter and matted with Chocolate Chip. Then I stamped French Flair on a scrap of Close to Cocoa and cut into 1/2" strips for the tabs with brads.

I used my mat pack and paper piercer to pierce holes all around the Close to Cocoa and the Chocolate Chip Mats and to punch evenly spaced holes for the Making Memories Aged Copper mini circle brads. Next I glued it all down, added the Prima Forever Flowers and added a page pebble from JoAnn's to the Circle of friendship punch out (1" circle, matted on Chocolate Chip and glued with a pop dot). The final touch was a Many Thanks rubon from 7 Gypsies across the center panel.
