When you are running short on time Designer Series Paper is always a great solution to make a quick card.  Today's card uses the Pansy Petals paper.

I used three different patterns from the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper and of course stamps and dies from the Eden's Garden Bundle.  The sentiment and it's background were made with dies from Stitched So Sweetly dies.  If you don't already have this die set, I'm just going to say it -- you NEED it.  There are six different size layers of stitched scalloped rectangle dies, and four dies of various sizes and shapes that are perfect for large or small sentiments.  You can check out the details more closely in the product list below.

The interest in today's card is created more by the layout and the paper than by the colors.  The color scheme for this card is very tonal, but the different shades and patterns of green keep it from becoming too boring.

The flower was stamped on Basic White cardstock with Soft Succulent Ink and then fussy cut.  Yes, unfortunately, there is not a coordinating die for the flower, but the rest of the dies in Eden Dies make up for it.  It is a relatively easy image to fussy cut.

It doesn't show very well in the photo, but I added a bit of clear Wink of Stella to the flower bouquet to provide some shimmer.  Three embellishments called Wonderful Gems have gold flecking inside the gem and add a bit more sparkle.  The Wonderful Gems were in the Holiday Mini Catalog, and I still have a few left, so thought I'd use them.  Obviously, you can substitute with any embellishment you have.

Again, I kept the inside simple.  Did I mention I was running out of time to get this card made and posted?  Adding a strip of the Designer Series Paper with a coordinating solid cardstock border is always a quick solution for dressing up the inside of your card.
