Springtime Girlie

As many times as I tidy off my desk I still miss things stashed in the crevasses. That's why it is good to poke around in the corners from time to time.  I found what I thought was just a blue card base, but when I opened it up it had this colored and corner-punched image along with this designer paper.

I pulled it out and made this card with it.  The blue card base turned out to be too flimsy to make a good card (take note people, the stuff Michael's and Joann's calls 'cardstock' often isn't) so I chopped it up to make layers for my card.  Then I added a million paper flowers and fun brads.

Poof! A card was born!  The pile of stuff on my desk lessened and someone's mailbox was cheered.

Lovely card PJ and such a darling image too. If it's from the PB French themed set then I probably have it here - unopened. Slap my wrists!

Oh I love your little mimi cafe and the flowers are fabulous. Rarely do I buy the stuff at michaels or Joannes, if I do, it's only for layering, not cardstock for the bases. But it does cut down on the overall weight if used in layers.
