Thank You for a Sketch and Color Challenge

This Thank You came together pretty quickly thanks to the Clean & Simple Stamping FTL#127 here, and the Create with Connie and Mary Color Challenge #137 here.
Since the colors in the challenge are Rose Red, Pink Pirouette, Baha Breeze and Pear Pizzazz I had to use the Springtime Vintage DSP! The Rose Red card stock was run thru the Big Shot with the Square Lattice textured impressions embossing folder. Then I added a strip of the Springtime Vintage DSP. I stamped the big flower from Vintage Vogue on Pink Pirouette card stock in Rose Red. The little flowers were stamped on Very Vanilla in Pink Pirouette and Baha Breeze. And the leaves were stamped in Pear Pizzazz. I added a Circle Ice Rhinestone brad to the center flower and popped it up with Stampin dimensionals. I threaded a retired Rose Red button with a sliver of Baha Breeze. Finally, thank you from Short and Sweet was stamped in Rose Red.
Here's my recipe:
Stamps: Vintage Vogue and Short and Sweet
Papers: Very Vanilla, Rose Red, Baha Breeze, Pink Pirouette, Springtime Vintage DSP
Inks: Rose Red, Pink Pirouette, Baha Breeze, Pear Pizzazz
Accessories: retired Rose Red button, Circle Ice Rhinestone brad, Stampin dimensionals, Square Lattice embossing folder
