Under My Umbrella, Flourishing Phrases, Thank You Card, Stampin' Up!

Today I threw together a quick and simple card.  It was quick for me because I found those flowers on my worktable from another project that I had cut too many but I didn't want to throw them out.  Saving them for another day and today was that day!

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock. 

I had found the textured "Stitched Nested Labels" die cut piece. I had made it for another project but I had changed my mind on and I had set it aside for another day too!  I set it on top of the card base but I didn't like how it looked so plain, so I cut a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Whisper White card stock and taped it onto the card base.

I set up the textured piece in my Stamparatus. Oh, I had textured it using the "Subtle" embossing folder.  I used the words from the "Flourishing Phrases" set using black Memento ink.  I was glad I set it up in my Stampartus because it didn't stamp very dark on the texture.  If you are making this card and have to add your texture, stamp your words first and then texture.  I set this piece in place using Dimensionals.

I took the flowers that were sitting around. The are from the "Under My Umbrella" set and I was going to use them on this card but I didn't need to cut and color as many pieces as I did.  I thought they fit nicely in opposite corners. I just glued them in place.

I sprinkled some "Iridescent Sequins" around to see if I liked it and I just glued them in place where they had landed. And the card was done.

I like having pieces from other projects left sitting around and yet I don't.  I don't like them sitting around but they come in handy when making a quick card.  But then again, not always.  You need to have an idea as to how to work them into a card!!  Such a dilemma!!! LOL  My workroom is always a mess, it's unorganized and full! So when I run across something, it was long forgotten and buried under something! You never know what you will find in my workroom!

Anyway, even without finding the pieces cut and colored, this card wouldn't take long to make.

Thank you SO much for taking the time to stop by today,
