Take Good Care Get Well Card

Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! I'm still persevering bashing a paper pad made in 2016 and that I bought in late 2017 or early 2018. From that time to last week I had 3 scrap pieces left off of 17 sheets used. So 63+ has whittled down to 59 before this posting's card was made. 

The orange background paper and of the bottom layer of the glitter flower are bolder, richer oranges that the scanner has faded out, so imagine what I'm seeing is a deeper set of contrasts from peaches, to deep orange, to a bit of yellow, sage greens, and charcoal grays.

Additional design notes:

1. base is the pale peach cardstock however the aqua/sage green is backing the top cover; I felt that the color contrast needed another mid or darker tone to help balance; dimension of the top layer is about 4.5" wide and 5.75" high (aqua, mid-gray, and orange CS is Art Skills/Crafter's Choice; pale peach is Neenah)

2. Mint Berry paper pad selections that I'm bashing: the green scalloped, the green and white diagonal stripe, and the charcoal gray with white x's.

3. Floral washi tape (My Mind's Eye)

4. glitter flowers and gem, stamp/sentiment, black ink pad are from my supplies
