I loved this piece of printed card stock the minute I saw it-and grabbed it up lickity split. It was the last sheet on the rack. My thoughts were to glitter it up with spring colors but I changed my mind. I cut off a hunk for this card instead. I also found a two sided card stock with light and dark pink and used that for a layer behind it but on top of a medium olive textured folded card.

I roughed up the edged of all the pieces and added large pink brads to the corners of the printed card stock and snipped off the brad backs before layering. I wanted to bring out the little bit of yellow on the card so looped this ribbon piece and tied it in a small bow. Popping a Prima with a tiny chrystal on the top gave it a little more character. I then used a few peices of the pink again and made criss cross layers. The image was stamped on a blue remnant that matched another color in the flowery piece. Again it was really simple and the stamp is from Rubber Stamping Fun but it is not on the website yet as far as I can tell.

Go look and poke around a bit. I have one more card for tomorrow for you to see from this 6 piece set (I did use a few of them more than once) and hope you have enjoyed them. The final one tomorrow was saved for last because it was my fav. I will also post a photo of the set itself then.
