RS217 Flourished Hello

Happy Thursday, peeps!  I am late today, but here nontheless with a card using the Retrosketches sketch for this week:

This card is a little busier than I had planned, but these new Floral Boutique papers and Flourish dies were calling my name!  So here we go:

The patterns I used for the front are the flip sides of each other, and I used a plain piece of Night of Navy for the diagonal piece and a plain Whisper White banner that was embossed with the new Seaside embossing folder!  But the Flourish diecut steals the show, IMO:

But this little bird from the Birds & Blooms thinlits might be my favorite:  

Isn't he sweet?  The sentiment is from the Flourishing Phrases set as well.....really pretty set!  A few pearls added a little extra shine as well.   Thanks for peeking in today!

A little Candyland game with her doll as we "rest up" the ankle...not really!  She is pretty well back to her active little self although we are trying to keep her off her foot...a difficult task for a 5YO at the beginning of summer!  Thanks to all of you who offered well wishes and prayers!  They worked!

Enjoy your day!

This card is gorgeous LeAnne. I love these new papers and dies too and can't wait to order them.
I'm sorry to hear about Cassidy's ankle. I pray that is will heal quickly and that she will have some patience to be able to 'rest' when she needs to.
