Get Well Card ~ Floral Frenzy (post #2)

I dug into my large scrapbook paper stash to find some paper I haven't used yet.
Like a lot of crafters I have an obsession with collecting pretty paper... so much so that I have put myself on a paper buying time out.
Starting my blog and getting inspiration from the blogs I follow and the challenges I enter has helped me start shopping from my own stash.
The picture doesn't even come close to showing the extent of my obsession stash.
I literally have years worth of paper.
I really love how all these products came together to create my card.

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Card front design paper panels cut from the Colorbok Spring Morning 12 x 12 paper pad.
*Middle panel cut using the Stitched Journal Die from My Creative Time.
*Sentiment stamp is called  Feel Better Plain Jane from Verve Stamps.
*Oval cut from a Marvy punch then embossed using the Cuttlebug Musical Flourish folder.
*Ribbon from the Caribbean Splash  set from 3 Girl Jam.
*Paper flower from Michaels.
*CTMH Green Chiffon stamp pad.

May your day always be filled with love.

  10. Lovely mix of papers and layered sentiment panel. Thanks for joining us at The Curtain Call.

  11. I love your papers and how this pretty card turned out too! Your layout was most interesting, and drew the eye right in, to enjoy the lovely mix of pinks & pastel blue. The very back paper was a real combination of the other 2 layers in the foreground. The circle focal point atop the horizontal oval piece was also an interesting design point. This card is bound to cheer up whomever receives it. Liked the background foliage against the card photograph too. TFS & becoming a new follower.
