Words Are Never Enough

Words Are Never Enough card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Reverse Confetti
Here's my card for this week's challenge at Global Design Project.  I CASEd Connie's pretty floral design, keeping the layout, color scheme, and floral theme in my version.

I used a purple on purple floral patterned paper as the base for my design.  I recently added Reverse Confetti's The Most Beauty stamp set to my collection and knew that I wanted to make one of the sentiments the focal point of my design.  The mix of fonts in this set is so pretty!  I stamped the thank you sentiment in plum ink on a cream circle.  To set the sentiment off from the floral paper, I adhered a Purple Lacy Scallop Circle die cut to the patterned paper panel, then adhered two trims over the panel.  The trims, one a girly ruffled organdy and the other a rougher textured burlap, give the design some texture in a nod to the pleated strip on Carrie's original design.The sentiment panel was adhered on top using foam tape.  I accented the panel with a pair of layered purple paper flowers with a self-adhesive pearl at the center.  The finished panel was adhered to a card base to match the mat for the sentiment panel.

Materials Used:
The Most Beauty stamp set, Lacy Scallop Circles dies (Reverse Confetti); Plum Punch ink (Gina K Designs); Rich Razzleberry cardstock (Stampin' Up!); So Sophie-Graceful 6x6 paper pad (My Mind's Eye); circle dies (Spellbinders); burlap trim (Michaels); elastic organdy trim (Hobby Lobby); flowers (Prima); self adhesive pearl; foam tape
