Freshly Made Stamped Sentiment

Good afternoon all.  Today's card is a clean and simple design based on the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #42 and the Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge #125.

For the base I chose Naturals White card stock.  I added a layer of the same card stock that was run through the Big Shot with the Argyle embossing folder.  A piece of Floral District designer paper was matted with Calypso Coral card stock and added to the
card front.  Another piece of the same designer paper was also matted with Calypso Coral card stock.  The sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set was stamped on this layer with StazOn ink.  I wrapped Calypso Coral Baker's Twine three times around and added a Calypso Coral brad.  This layer was then attached to the card with glue dots.  The large image (I guess you'd call it a splat) from the Clockworks stamp set was stamped on Calypso Coral, Baja Breeze, and Daffodil Delight card stocks using the same color inks on each.  I then punched out a 1" square from each one, punching a different area of each  image.  I then attached them to a piece of Naturals White card stock and popped this layer up with dimensionals.  Pearls were colored with the same color markers and added to each square.  I read a tip on line about coating the pearls with Mod Podge, letting it dry and then coloring with our markers.  That's what I did to get the right colors; they're not perfect matches but are pretty close.  There it is - a really simple card to put together.  I hope your weekend has been a fun one and you've had some time to be creative.
