Birthday Blooms mini thank you cards

Happy Snowy Spring! I know, right! 
It is snowing here in New England, USA.

Today I wanted to share with you the thank you cards I made for the ladies
 that came to my Stampin' Up workshop a few weeks ago.  
I love having SU parties, my demonstrator Becky is so talented and 
sweet and challenges us each time.  I love her style! 
We created two amazing cards... will add them on another post.

For my thank yous: 
I created 3.5" x 3.5" cards -I am loving this new size.  
I know the standard is 3"x3" cards, but I can still use an 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper and create three cards, so why not add the extra 1/2", right?

 No envelopes needed: 
I did not create envelopes since I was dropping them in the bags of goodies each girl got.


SU flower stamp: Birthday Blossoms
Background border: Fresh Vintage from Stampin' Up
Inside I stamped the "thank you" from the new stamp set Rose Garden (I am in love)
Wink of Stella - you know I did!
Brother Scan N Cut 2 cutting machine
Dimensionals to pop the flowers, but not the stems
Colored with Copic markers

Colors used:
Yellow flower: E25, Y19, 08, 04
Orange flower: E29, YR18, 07, 04
Teal flower: BG49, 45, 13
Green leaves: G99, 09, 05, 02

Lilac flower: V000, 02, 04 (I'm almost sure)
lilac flower leaves: BG96, 93

Best part was I had a crazy busy week so each morning, before work,  I colored only one flower.  
Each took about five minutes to color, so not a big deal to do while my car was warming up.  
I managed to color 4 last week, and most days that was all the coloring I got to do.  
I have two more to go - one for Becky and the other one for Kay.

Here are the others!
