Howdy, cardmakers and scrappers!
Today's card is a testament to hanging in there and not giving up because, man, this card did not look very promising until about half-way through the process!
My focus is on Saffron Yellow Pepper Soup products from Jillibean Soup - a very fun and versatile line. (I suspect you'll enjoy discovering all of its options!)

Tip #1: I needed a third patterned paper but wanted something with a small, floral image, so I made my own by using the smallest flower stamps on thin white card stock. I used ink that matched the blue in the small circles pattern, and the recipient will never know it wasn't manufactured in the factory.
Tip #2: I needed some matching Enchanted Evening card stock but was out (waaah)! But then I grew a brain and inked up a strip of white card stock with Enchanted Evening ink. Perfect match!
Thanks for stopping and have a blessed day!
