The Littlest Things

 Recently I was looking at the newest arrivals at the Simon Says Stamp store, and came across this quote from Winnie the Pooh.  I discovered Pooh Bear later than most and have a soft-spot in my heart for all things Pooh!  So of course, this stamp came home to live with me.  Here's my first play with it.

supplies: white, Green Apple, and coral cardstock, vellum, Concord & 9th Blooms Turnabout, Impression Obsession Little Things cling stamp, flower and leaf sprig dies, Doodlebug tiny heart sprinkle

Since this sentiment is on the larger side, I decided I wanted it to be the focal point of my card.  I also remembered this amazing card by Wanda that I had pinned because I loved her choice of colors for the floral background.  So I made my background panel using Wanda's colors.  After all that work, I was hesitant to stamp my sentiment directly onto the panel, so to be safe, I stamped it on vellum, and then wrapped it around the floral.  Then I added a flower and some leaves.

In hindsight, I think I probably could have gotten away with stamping directly over the background - I'll try that next.
