Stock Your Stash

A new month means that Jen has a new theme posted for the Stock Your Stash Challenge on the Reverse Confetti blog! She's chosen a "hello/just because" theme which gives a gazillion possibilities to play along.  I'm hoping to send my card out to a friend...just because.  No holiday or special occasion is needed to send out cards which makes this type of card even more special to the recipient!

I haven't used these Big Notes sentiments much and wanted to make it a focal point on a tag.  I chose one of the Pierced Round Top Layers dies and added the tag hole from the Tag Me die set. I saw a card on Pinterest using aqua, red, kraft and white and wanted to see if I could create a striking balance of these colors.  I love the texture that the Stitched Rays Cover Panel die gives to a background.  It's one of my current fave cover panels!  I used RC's Stamped Note die for the next layer then accented with an aqua Wreath die - also by RC. Some Leafy sprigs were paired with flowers from the Build A Bunch set.  

So, that's it for my first card today!  It's grocery shopping time and my floors need mopping.  Afterward I hope to get some more stamping time in the schedule.  Hope you're having a super Saturday!
