Office Supply Fun

My craft room has finally cooled down enough where I can enjoy stamping in there again :) I made this card for the Ways to use it challenge on SCS (Office Supplies). As soon as I read the challenge, this card made by Mercy immediately popped into my mind. Thanks for the inspiration Mercy!

Luckily Kylie was still sleeping when I started this card because I had to tear a page from her brand new school notebook ;) I trimmed the paper to the size I wanted and then used my corner rounder just on the top right side. I stamped the flower image from the set Bloom (which is expected to be back in stock in about two weeks!) and colored with Prismacolor pencils and blended with OMS.
The ribbon is bunched up and then stapled to keep it in place. I wrapped the edges of the ribbon around the pink layer (which was embossed with an embossing folder) before I adhered the rest of the layers. I used one of my heart sticky notes but because the adhesive on it ran directly down the middle, I adhered it to Pink Pirouette cardstock and cut out and stamped the sentiment. I put just a bit of tape across the top part of the heart so that it can be lifted up to see the second sentiment stamped directly under it-

For the inside of the card, I followed the same theme as the front of the card-
See you all tomorrow for the Friday TSG Challenge! You might want to check it out to see how you can save some money ;)
