I feel like lately every card I make has had a purpose, either a class or a design team card. Unfortunately, I haven’t had time to stamp “just because” and I really needed it! I had some time this week to search around some of my favorite sites and I found this great layout from Stampin’ Royalty:
In knew it was perfect for just playing around. I needed a change of color palette so I pulled out my Greenhouse Gala DSP and found just the right print.
I love these flowers and they really demand to be the focal point of a card. This layout really highlights the DSP (although a stamped panel would be beautiful too). I took the bow and words off center which seemed to balance the print better. Not sure why, but making this card made me really happy. It came together quickly and I love the pop of Pumpkin Pie.
I hope you get some “just because” stamping time soon! Thanks for stopping in today. I’m looking forward to a busy weekend…soccer, an 8 year old birthday party and my mom in town! Hope your Memorial Day weekend is happy and safe. Don’t forget to remember this weekend! I’m thankful for those who serve and those who have sacrificed.
