A card created with pieces

I needed a card for a family birthday and created this one from the pieces left on my desk after creating this card.   I started by embossing the left hand side of my yellow card front using a QK embossing folder.  I sponged the embossing a bit with read ink and used my stipple stamp (SU) to add yet a bit more texture with the same red ink.  I added the strip of red origami paper to the right hand side.  I love the serendipity flowers!!  I added some sponged yellow punchies in their centers to finish them off and used double sided tape to adhere them to the embossed side of my card.  I wanted a nice prominent greeting and found this one in my stash.   It was laser printed on white so I simply watercoloured it using coordinating colours.  It is a greeting from Birds Cards.  Really happy with this one too!!
