Thanks a Bunch...for small stamps!

Hi Crafty Friends,

Sometimes, a card doesn't need a big focal image to be impactful. Sometimes, the small images on a stamp sets is all that you need. That's what I did on this card using Paper Smooches, Friendly Flowers. I rounded up 6 small stamps to create my own patterned paper which I always enjoy because I get the freedom to make what I know I will use!

The simple outline on the images combined with a solid blue rectangle with rounded edges set off the large patterned banner. I simple sentiment gets straight to the point.

I used the same small images on the inside of the card to tie the front of the card to the inside.

I am entering this card into the My Favorite Things: Sketch Challenge, Color Throw Down: Color Challenge, Crafty Sentiments Challenge: Anything Goes, Simon Says Stamp: Monday Challenge,  and Paper Smooches: Monthly Challenge.
