# Black Eyed Susan Strip # Bonnie Garby

Thinking of You Card

Hi Cheery Lynn fans.  Bonnie here today from Make Time to Craft sharing a very purple-y 'Thinking of You' card featuring some gorgeous dies from Cheery Lynn Designs.
I just LOVE purple, don't you?  Add a little green for contrast and oh-la-la.

My card measures 5-1/2" x 5-1/2" and I built a few layers including a pretty layer at the bottom using white mulberry paper.  I topped that with purple and green and then a piece of Distress Ink paper I made in purple with a little green and layered the Felicity Doily on that.

I then added a strip of ribbon across the center and topped that with my sentiment circle.
For the bottom half of my card, I created 3 gorgeous flowers using the Black Eyed Susan Strip.  I cut the flowers out of the same Distress Ink paper and used a plum color for the centers.  I created a bed of greenery using the foliage dies from the Floral Bouquet kit and added the flowers on top of that.

This flower looks so complicated, but is in fact one of the easier flowers to make.  I will include my video tutorial below.

My bi-color bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using two of the ribbons in the July Perfectly Purple Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and happy crafting!
