Thank You Card Using Conie Fong Ellie Bouquet

Hello Friends!  Can you believe it is summer?  I am finding it hard to get too excited about it being hot.  LOL!  Plus, it makes it harder for social distancing with the people who have to go to the beach.  Our numbers are dreadful in the USA (in the world actually); and too many people have made COVID-19 political; which is causing all kinds of problems.  I feel so sorry for all the people who have lost loved ones to this Pandemic we are all going through.  

I hope all of you are doing better than I am right now.  It makes me upset and angry that our world has become what it has in the past months.  All I can do is try and create something better by staying home and creating my cards.  

I decided I wanted to pair my Crafters Companion Gemini Edgeable Dies/Borders and words with my love of digital stamps; so here is my first attempt.  I also wanted to use this gorgeous CTMH paper pack.  I used Conie Fong "Ellie Bouquet".  Another image I had ready to color and hadn't taken the time to color it.  The colors are much prettier in person; but peach is another color that doesn't photograph very well.  I hope you enjoy it.
