Trio Of Flower Thanks Cards

I made these thanks cards for Angela, Janet and Anne to say thank you for throwing me a birthday tea party and for my gifts.  We had a wonderful afternoon!   I thought I'd use the same design for all three cards but use a different colour for each card. Angela's fave colours are purples, Janet's are blues and I don't know what Anne's faves are.  So I used pink and brown for her card - one of my fave combos! 

I started by gluing the die cut flower stems to the white 5 1/4" square card base and then I added torn Gumball Green CS at the bottom.  I stamped the flowers using Early Espresso ink on Primrose Petals CS, Midnight Muse ink on Marina Mist CS and Elegant Eggplant ink on Wisteria Wonder CS.  I punched all the flowers, shaped them and popped them up.  I stamped and die cut the sentiment labels, popped those up too and sprinkled on sparkly crystals. 

Inside I stamped a label, the 'so kind of you' sentiment and added three stamped, punched and shaped flowers.

The envelope flaps got flowers and crystals too.  I hope the ladies liked their cards!
