Couldn't Stay Away All Day

I am going crazy. I cannot sit still (or should I say lie still) all day, so I did this one card.


I love how the bottom turned out. (better IRL) I used Blue Bayou, Soft Sky, River Rock, and Old Olive with the Paper Trey Texted Box set. It really looks like DP. Nichole has done such a fantastic job with all her sets, she includes many different sized stamps. I am not so happy about the top, but I have promised myself that I am not going to be so hard on myself any more.

What do you think, is it to busy up top, maybe I should just stamp the words, and not all the flowers.

Stamps: Texted Box Inks: Blue Bayou, Soft Sky, River Rock, Old Olive Paper: Blue Bayou, Old Olive, Whisper White Extras: Corner rounder, small & large oval punch, artichoke ribbon

This card is perfect Corie! I do not think the top is too busy at all! The green matt works so well, it sets off your sentiment and background flowers nicely. TFS-Deb

Hi Corie,

I think your card looks great and not at all busy at the top. It looks perfect in my opinion.

Corie, this is a beautiful card (in fact, hope you don't mind if I CASE this). First, I love the color combo. And I think that by matting the top part in olive, it is a nice contrast to the blue bayou lower mat. Love the stamped DP. This is such pretty PaperTrey set. Also like the stamped "i" in the sentiment. Thanks for sharing this wonderful card.
