Get Well Soon - TSTR182

Hey ya'll!

{Excited and honored, This card made Top 3 at The Shabby Tea Room on 9/9/13}

It's been awhile since I got crafty in something other than Design Team Work. So today I have a share for The Shabby Tea Room using some Paper Sweeties goodness. The theme is Sweet Summertime. I don't think I am ready to let summer go. I am a solar powered girl, so I love the warmer weather. Not a big fan of the cold or the white stuff. :-))) 

So enough chit chat I guess. :-)
I started off with a white card base and created a 5 x 5 card. I pieced my patterned papers onto the base. Believe it or not these papers are from a kit I found at Ikea of all places. I have had them in my stash forever.  I figured this was a wonderful challenge to cut into them. 

At the top of the card, I added some white trim that came with the paper kit. I created a fussy bow and embellished with a flower and pretty stick pins. I die-cut a scallop heart from some glitter paper and added that to center adding a doily to the top which you can see peeking out! :-) I stamped the wonderful flower image from Paper Sweeties You Are in Tide Pool ink, colored with copics, fussy cut and distressed the edges. A pom pom trim and glitter has been added to the flower pot before adding to the glittered heart.  Final embellishing touches included adding various paper flowers and a Get Well Soon sentiment from Paper Sweeties Occasions stamp set. I almost forgot, rhinestones were added to the flower centers for a little glitz! 

Here is the beautiful inspiration photo.
I am also joining in at Paper Playtime - Use 3 different papers, Just B Creative Crazy - Anything Goes Linky Party. Link Up Tuesday - Linky Party, DL Art - Thankful Thursday September Linky Party, My Craft Spot - Get Well, Sweet Shop Blog - Use What you have (that would be a ton of paper)
This is only a small bit of it too!
Thanks for dropping by!
Smiles and Blessings!
