A Workshop Card

Hello everyone. If you're still visiting my blog let me just say thank you for your patience with me. School is almost out and I will have a lot more time for stamping and posting. I have started back up doing card workshops and this is one of the cards for this month. I have photographed the others so be watching. If I can steal a couple of minutes away, I'll post them.

The base of the card is sweet leaf and I used a stamp from the Intrinsic Backgrounds stamp set using a sweet leaf stamp pad to make it subtle. The cute paper is from the Emporium Level 2 paper pack. I love the colors in this set. They are Buttercup, Cocoa, Crystal Blue and Sweet Leaf. The other stamp used on this card is from the Gracious Greetings set. I love the script writing. Wish I could write like that!

The embellishments were fun to add. The white flower is from the Big Pinks paper flowers set. The corduroy brad is from the Mini-Medley winter cozy collection...sooo fun! The clear flower is from promotional item that Close To My Heart did during the last Idea Book. I couldn't resist adding it with one of our buttons. You may or may not be able to tell, but I used Staz-On white ink with another of the Intrinsic Backgrounds stamps. I put that one on a foam square to add dimension. The only thing not Close To My Heart on this card is the little flower punch and the center. I love punches so I pick them up all the time. I think that the little pearl center was from the dollar spot at Target :0)

That's all for now. Thanks for stopping by :0)
You are Close to My Heart,

Love everything about your card!! Especially the different angles with just some of the corners rounded.
