Thank You Card with Inlaid Flower & World Card Making Day!

First and foremost!  Happy World Card Making Day!
I actually did not make this card in honor of this fabulous day... but it is one I made recently and wanted to post today, since I really haven't started making my holiday cards yet... and the whole idea behind World Card Making Day is to celebrate card makers, as well as kick off the holiday card making season!  At any rate... here is me... celebrating all the card makers of the world!! Whoot Whoot!
  



I used my Gypsy and Cricut Expression to lay out the flower for this card and cut it out from Vintage Cream cardstock. Then I paper-pieced coordinating patterned paper from Basic Grey behind each flower petal to give the card a "in-laid" look. A button with some twine and a simple little Thank You stamp finished out this super simple card.

I entered this card in these challenges:

Hi Beth,

What a great card! I have an Expression, but never use it enough in my card-making! Seeing how creative you were with this design, has inspired me to try something new! I love how you used all the different papers for each of the flower petals - very cool!

Thanks for joining Baby Bud Designs for our very first challenge. We hope you'll be back soon and please be sure to hope over for our next Friday Freebie on October 29!

Happy crafting,
Lisa
