Love & Laughter - letting patterned paper do the work!

Hello everyone!  Just popping in with a quick and easy card that focuses on letting patterned paper do most of the work.

That gorgeous rose patterned paper is from the Kaisercraft Lady Rose collection, a gift from a crafty friend. :-)  I can't remember what collection the polka dotted paper is from, as I made this card more than a year ago.

After adhering the polka dots to a cocoa card base, I took a 6 x 6 sheet of the rose paper and let one beautiful corner head straight down the card, sort of like the flap of an envelope.  I stamped a large sentiment from Hero Arts Truly Appreciated atop the flowers.

The small flourished die cut, also from the Lady Rose collection, was added under the corner, and topped with a vintage-style gem from Recollections.
 And that's it!  What a quick card to put together.

I'm going to take a look through my Webster's Pages collections with this idea in mind. Those papers have beautiful images in corners and can lend themselves well to this concept.

Thanks so much for joining me today!

What a great idea! Love the concept for these gorgeous papers. The two pieces go beautifully together. The flourished piece and large gem are a nice finishing touch, and I love the large sentiment. After a year goes by I don't always love my cards anymore, but this one is timeless.
