Fill Each Day with Joy

to everyone who visited my blog for the Spellbinders Blog Frenzy!
Thank you for all the comments!  I loved reading each and every one!  You are all so inspiring to me!

I thought I'd share a little more information about my Blog Frenzy card, "Joy".

The card base is 5" x 5" cream card stock.  I used a floral stamp from Flourishes From the Garden set to repeatedly stamp around the edges using Vintage Photo ink.  It's certainly not very visible but it added texture interest to my cream card stock.  Next there's a maroon square, then KaiserCraft paper.  I used the largest Lacey Squares to  cut the  maroon pattern paper from KaiserCraft.  All patterned papers are from KaiserCraft Gypsy Sisters Collection  I used Classic Square LG #7 to cut the next piece of the KaiserCraft paper.  Then there's a maroon Lacey Squares cut with #4 from Worldwin card stock.  My next mat is aqua, then cream card stock with the verse stamped in Espresso ink and clear embossed.  I shaded the edges with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo distress inks.  The last Lacey Squares frame was cut and embossed with #3 and #2 die templates.  I popped it up with Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. Three buttons and a bow finish the card.   
There are lots of layers to this card but it's quite simple to put together.  The color combination of these papers really makes this card!
