Dandelion Wishes, Get Well Card

Once again I find myself doing some sponging in of colors.  It's not one of my favorite techniques but I like it much better now that I have all of my sponge daubers in a container instead of just taking a clean one each time I want to sponge. I labeled the daubers and now they will never need to be washed, plus they are all in one place and ready to use.  

Today's card was, all in all, pretty fun to make.  I did have to use some retired Designer Series Paper (DSP) because my order doesn't arrive until Thursday afternoon.  That translates into "you have to use retired stuff until then".  The "Dandelion Wishes" stamp set is not retired, so if you want to make a card like this, just substitute the DSP for something current, or if you want to use up retired papers or other papers you have, go for it!!!  It's an easy enough layout.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic Black card stock.  The DSP was cut 3-7/8" x 5-1/8".  I taped that to the Basic Black layer.  

I cut a 2" x 5-1/8" piece of Whisper White and I stamped the dandelion image from the "Dandelion Wishes" set.  I used the image that has the three dandelions instead of the single one.  I used Versa Mark to stamp them and I sprinkled them with clear embossing powder.  I heat embossed them and then I sat down to do my sponging.

For my sponging I used Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Mint Macaron, Coastal Cabana and Highland Heather.  I taped the panel to a 2-1/8" x 5-1/8" piece of Basic Black card stock.  I taped that panel to the front of the card.

The words are from the same "Dandelion Wishes" set. I stamped them using black Memento ink.  I die cut them with the stitched circle die and then I die cut a scalloped circle die using Basic Black card stock for the layer.  I taped the circles together and then I used Dimensionals to affix them to the front of the card.

I used some sequins from the "Iridescent" sequin assortment.  And much to my surprise, they were not retired!!!  YAY!!!  I glued the sequins in place and the card was done.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
