Share the Joy - Card #3

For today's card, I've combined the large die cut panel from the Share the Joy special with a number of other products to create this...

I love texture on texture, so I cut the cover die from the same cardstock as my card base and glued them together. Then I decorated a tag and the smallest flower from Stitched Flower Thin Cuts (also featured in this post) with stamps from Share the Joy. My ink colors are Sapphire, Willow, Lemon, and Nectarine. I sponged the edges of the flower and flower center in Lemon and Nectarine respectively just to give a little more interest. Next time I make this card, I'll cut the flower from the light side of Lemon paper before stamping and sponging. To ground the flower a bit more, I added So Much Happy Washi Tape. The finishing touch was Sapphire Crochet Thread.

There's a great deal of "finishing" work to do on the new house - pictures on the walls, curtains up, etc. - but I have a feeling it's going to be put off in favor of more play time for both my husband and me. I need to have company over to spur that final push. Anyone want to come?

Until next time,
