Get well soon

Hi everyone!  Today I took a break from our rare snow event to make this quick and easy Get Well card.  I used the darling mini set from Taylored Expressions called Tea-riffic and some basic die shapes from Spellbinders.  This card is flat and easy to mail!

I get asked often what are my favorite dies from Spellbinders.  There are so many beautiful shapes, flowers, labels, accents, borders, etc to chose from and don't get me wrong- I have my favorites in each category.  But I find that I get the most use out of my basic core shapes like my circles, squares and rectangles!  I find they are timeless, never go out of style, and easy to embellish with other dies and embellishments.
 My card uses pattern paper from My Mind's Eye, but it is the Michael's repackaged paper pads.  Have you noticed Michael's sells MME, but they are repackaged with different names and are usually older designs?  Anyway, when I was there the other day I was surprised to find a pad I did NOT already have and bought it.  I paper pieced the tea cup with a matching pattern and used some stickles and sequins as accents.  I love the offsetting squares with the teacup popped up in the center of the circle.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
