Simon Says Stamp Bouquet of Thanks III

I think this is one of my favorite sets by Simon Says Stamp!  I had just gotten the die that goes with Bouquet of Thanks and had to try it out!  The first thing I did for this card was stamp the image onto Bristol Smooth paper and color with Zig markers.  I chose assorted bright colors and used a little water to soften them.  I then used the die to cut out the image and set it aside while I figured out my next steps!

Using my Hero Arts Ribbon Messages Stamp & Cut set, I stamped out Get Well onto a strip of watercolor paper then cut it with the banner die, adding a larger background banner in blue.  I had the Gina Marie Designs Stitched Rectangle die already in my stash and decided to incorporate it into my card somehow.

This pretty red and white polka-dotted paper came in a thick paper pad given to me by my daughter, Caitlin and was the perfect background for my card!  I trimmed down a panel of it to fit on my white card base, then attached the Stitched Rectangle die cut in the center; I think it helps to break up the dotty background and nicely frames the flowers!  The flowers were mounted with bits of foam tape and the last detail was to add some Nuvo Drops in Caribbean Ocean blue randomly onto the background!  There’s a lot going on, but it all works beautifully, I think, don’t you?  I hope that this card cheers up whoever receives it!
