I really liked this Georgia Peach Designer Series Paper, so I have, umm, yes ah, well, a 'little' bit leftover. It's so happy looking - it seems to be perfect for 'thinking of you' and 'get well' type of cards. Plus it's fun finding retired paper that will work with our new In Colors, so it looks fresh and new! Don't you like the Melon Mambo splashes of color on here?
All stamps and materials used by Stampin' Up!

There was really nothing hard about making this card. The part that took the longest was trying to decide what two accent pieces would work here. I tried rhinestone brads, Styled Silver brads, flower brads, flower punches, just the cardstock pieces, etc. In other words, I tried everything! I'm happy with the way the components all came together finally. Adding the large round brads on top of the square cardstock pieces kept both the round shapes from the sketch challenge, but also coordinated with the background squares.
I hope this inspires you to get out your stamps and have some fun. Remember, stamping brightens your day. And when you send it, it brightens someone else's day too! It's a win-win situation!
