essentials by ellen: pin-sights challenge

Hi there!  I'm sharing a card that I made using the Wild Garden dies by Essentials by Ellen. The sentiment comes from Mama Elephant's Many Thanks, which I know I've said before, is my most frequently used stamp set ever.

To make this card, I die cut the flowers and leaves from scraps of colored cardstock samples that I've had for over 2 years (hoard much?).  I stamped and cut out the sentiment.  Then I adhered everything down to the card base using glue and foam tape.  Lastly, I glued on a few black sequins to match the banner.  With minimal stamping and basic techniques, this card could be mass produced quite easily.

I'm submitting this to the Essentials by Ellen's pin-sights challenge, or rather call for guest designers. Fingers crossed my card will catch someone's eye!

Thanks for stopping by.

thank you so much

I'm back from a wonderful time spent with my family in California.  My mom had her 50 year reunion from medical school and my brother got married while I was out there, so my time was filled with celebrations, family, and so much love!  Still feeling the love, which inspired my creation.

I'm submitting this card to the CAS(E) this Sketch #182 challenge.  This is the sketch:

And, this is my card:
