The addition of some Metal Rimmed Pearls makes the flowers pop & I changed out the greeting

A few days ago I turned my mind to the table decorations for our upcoming Thanksgiving celebration - which I call our Gratitude Gathering.  You can see what I made here.

Blooms & Wishes inside the card

I was torn between sticking to a traditional autumnal theme or being more seasonal - given that it's Spring here in Australia.  I made samples of both and was eventually persuaded to go with the traditional - leaving me with a spare floral cutlery pouch.

How it looked as a cutlery pouch!

So - I decided to turn the cutlery pouch into a card.  The 6" Island Indigo base card is layered with a complimentary piece of the Blooms & Bliss Designer Series paper.
 
To make Island Indigo Bakers Twine, I put a couple of drops of Island Indigo Refill ink in a small container with a little water then added a length of Whisper White Thick Baker's Twine, making sure it was completely soaked in the ink and then left it to dry.

Thanks for visiting my blog today, there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you don't want to miss. We know that you will love our gallery of projects made by Stampin' Up!® Demonstrators around the world!

'Til next time!
