Got Paper?

If you are talking to me, that is a really silly question! I have too much paper if that really is a possibility to a papercrafter! I decided to reach into my stash for this card. I have way too much STASH and really, it is all good.
In a normal world, I would not have put these two prints together but I guess the night I started out to create this card was not my normal world and that is good! I love this BasicGrey birdcage print with this great, red print from Scenic Route.
The letter stickers are also BasicGrey and after I had them in place, I coated them with Aleene's Paper Glaze. I love the wonderful epoxy look that the glaze gave the letters. My little flower accents are just punched out pieces. The solid is Core'dinations cardstock and the smaller circles are punched from the same print as the card. Glitter, Doodlebug brads finish the flowers off.
Notice my fancy punched lacey border and the Core'dinations cardstock that has the edges sanded.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
