The Card Concept #34

Today, I have a card to share that I made for the current


We had a garage sale yesterday and in preparation for it,
I went through all of my crafting supplies and got rid of a lot of patterned paper
 and embellishments that I wasn't using.

In doing so, however, I came across some scraps of My Mind's Eye
patterned paper that I thought would be perfect for this challenge.

I thought I'd try for a Clean & Simple card, but once it was done,
I felt I needed to add a few more details, which brought me
back to my usual style: Clean & Layered.

Here's my card:


I diecut the striped patterned paper using my PTI Sentiment Split die.
I stamped my sentiment (from Wplus9's Mother's Day Bouquet stamp set)
in Ocean Tides.


Instead of leaving it at that, I fussy cut a couple of flowers from some leftover
patterned paper and adhered those, along with some PTI buttons to my card.

Thanks for looking!
