Everyday Enchantment Scraps

It is lovely having the Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper back but remember it is only available while stocks last - more details here. I still had some left over from Sale-a-Bration earlier this year - including lots of scraps which I couldn't bear to throw away, so thought I would make a quick card to use them up.

This looks far more complicated than it is and the Big Shot Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets make sticking all the strips down a doddle.  I mounted this piece onto a Poppy Parade mat which co-ordinates beautifully with the papers - this is one of the reasons I love Stampin' Up! as you don't have to hope things will match - they will! I have used Confetti Cream as my base card - the flecks in the card give it a "vintage" feel which is perfect with these papers.   

The sentiment is from one of my favourite sets - Sincere Salutations - a set of 8 versatile sentiments:-

I cut the sentiment out using the Framelits Dies from the Summer Mini Catalogue, sponged the edges and matted it on to another framelit shape cut in Poppy Parade. The card is then finished off with a piece of knotted Chantilly Crochet Trim.
