PPA#45 Thank So Much

I need some Thank You's for my daughter's graduation gifts so I made this cute one for the PPA#46 Color Challenge here.  I used the to be retired set, Think Happy Thoughts and the retiring Thoroughly Modern DSP and a die cut from the retiring The Write Stuff Specialty Papers.
I started with a Bermuda Bay card stock base and stamped the flower in Bermuda Bay. I ran a piece of Soft Suede thru the Scallop Border punch and added some dots with the White Gel pen. That was all adhered to the Thoroughly Modern DSP. On top of the die cut from The Write Stuff I added the sentiment stamped in Crushed Curry and punched with the 1 1/4 inch circle punch and layered  it onto a 1 3/8 inch circle punched from Crushed Curry. The flower was stamped in Bermuda Bay, punched with the 3/4 inch circle punch and  a gold brad was added to the center. A piece of 1/2 inch Crushed Curry polka-dot grosgrain ribbon finishes it off.
Here's my recipe:
Stamps: Think Happy Thoughts
Papers: Whisper white, Crushed Curry, Bermuda Bay, Soft Suede, Thoroughly Modern DSP, The Write Stuff Specialty Papers
Inks: Bermuda Bay and Crushed Curry
Accessories: 1 1/4 and 1 3/8 inch circle punches, white gel pen, scallop edge punch, gold brad, Stampin dimensionals, 1/2 inch Crushed Curry polka dot grosgrain
