Thursday Thank you!

Good Morning!  My downline, Dominique, requested a Thursday Thank You.  On this day, we will focus on a little treat you could give a friend or someone in your upline or downline to say Thank You, I really needed that!  Another one of my downline, Kimmy, brought me a water bottle with a crystal light packet and mini bar of chocolate.  I can't tell you how wonderful that made me feel!  Thanks Kimmy!!  I made my own to go with the theme this week.  I did some Dogwood leaves using our build a blossom set.
Stamp Set: Vintage Labels (2010 SAB), Build a Blossom
Paper: Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Love Letters DSP
Ink: Basic Black, Old Olive
Tools: Large Oval punch, blossom petals punch, 1/4" circle punch (retired, but you can use the circle from the punch pack), sponge dauber, scallop circle punch, 1-1/4" circle punch, 1/2" punch, Big Shot, vintage wallpaper embossing folder
Accessories: sticky strip, dimensionals, glue dots, water bottle, chocolate and drink packet :)

Card Tips: 
Here are the dimensions to make this one.  I hope you can read them. And the dimensions for the DSP is 1-7/8" x 2-2/8".  The Strip around the bottle measures 1.5" x 9".
Whole Thing

Tips for the dogwood: (inspired by Elizabeth Anderson)
Punch out 4 of the squatty leaves from the blossom petals punch.  Stack them all together and use the 1/2" circle punch to clip out the little groove at the top.  Then use your sponge dauber to highlight the edges.  Use your bone folder or pen to round the petals for dimension.

Maybe you could try to make this to say Thank you to someone who makes you feel special :)

Inky Hugs.
Beth :)
