A Smile Full of Thanks!

Popping in quickly to share a little card for my wonderful dentist and his very special team of people who have been taking care of my smile for many years. From the first visit, to each subsequent one, I've had nothing but wonderful experiences. Aside from all of the laughs and an abundance of humor, my dentist is incredibly compassionate, knowledgeable and very skilled. His utmost goal is the comfort and joy of his patients and it really shows. You know you've got one splendid team when you can't wait for your next visit!

There are no words that can capture the sheer gratitude I feel for all the wonderful care I've received over the years, but today's card is tiny way of saying thanks.

To start this card, I used a few layers of patterned papers to create a soft, but colorful background. I know bicycles have nothing to do with teeth, except that they're fun, whimsical and usually make people smile! Just below the patterned papers, I added a velvet ribbon and some buttons for a bit of texture.

I added a bow and some florals to the top of the card, using Wplus9's Southern Summer Florals 1 stamp set and dies, in colors of Hawaiian Shores, Lemon Tart, Bright Buttercup, Sweet Blush, Lovely Lady and Smokey Shadow. Oh these blooms are precious!

I stamped the sentiment using a mix of stamps: Hero Arts Thanks stamp set and a couple of other little sets I had sitting about onto PTI's 

Such a fun card to pull together for some of my favorite folks. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
