Toothless & Alive!

Hi everyone! Just wanted to check in and let you know my surgery went fine. I'm still in quite a bit of pain, but am just about due for another set of pain pills. YAY! I started a card yesterday before I left for surgery, and finished it up this morning. This one is for Shannan's Blog Candy and uses this Page Maps sketch.
Pretty straight forward card. The bluish patterned paper is Daisy' D's and the tan floral patterned paper is Fancy Pants. I have a very Type A personality that likes things in coordinated sets, so I rarely mix two company's papers on the same card. The valium I was on to ease my nerves yesterday morning must have overridden that part of my brain, so I mixed... and I like the way it turned out. The sentiment and flowers are from Happy Harmony and are stamped in Cranberry Crisp and Not Quite Navy. I masked the flowers and stamped Linen Background in Creamy Caramel and then used a Rhonna Farrer swirl stamp around the edges in Not Quite Navy. Cardstock is Not Quite Navy and Cranberry Crisp and the 3 panels are run through the Cuttlebug with my Textile folder. The card base is stamped with the Paisley background in Cranberry Crisp. I added Diamond Glaze and Dazzling Diamonds to the flowers and to the Hodgepodge Hardware on the ribbon treatment. The bling is from a pack of rhinestone stickers my DSS sent me.
Okay, back to the couch and my pile of chick flicks. Thanks for all the well wishes!
