Global Design Project 075

Thank You--You are Amazing with the Love & Affection Stamp Set

I finally used the Love & Affection stamp set I have in my stash to create a card in a series of Thank You cards for an upcoming class.  I certainly will use this stamp set again soon!  I am a bit of a floral addict and I love the building potential this set offers.  I did not originally plan to use a winged creature in this card, but the black and yellow color scheme in the background called for a little whimsy and the addition of the hovering bee. 
My original design spun off an idea of creating layers with the Neutrals Designer Series Paper stack with the envelop from the Love Notes Framelits Die Set and the dimensional design from the Petal Burst embossing folder.  I am so excited by those little envelopes! The double sided DSP creates such a cute package with the mix of script and polka dots! In addition, the Suite Sentiment and All Things Thanks Stamp Sets in the Occasions catalog displays the perfect sentiment for the intended Thank You Card using Archival Basic Black Ink.  I do love letting those who touch my life know how amazing they are!  Ultimately, this project did not come from a perfect image in minds eye, but evolved with a new element joining the others as I went along the creative process.    
The final design became a collaboration of two separate inspired ideas, which I grounded with the offset Basic Black and Gray borders.  Outside of the pop of Daffodil Delight, I desired to create balance and transition with the Neutral color combination.  Little touches using a light spray of Black Thread and detailed stitching peeks out from the trio of circles that I layered on top of the Basic Black banner fishtailed using the Banner Triple Punch.
