Here's a rather retro card I've made using lots of bits from my snippets box teamed with a stamped sentiment in a font style that is so very retro it really ought to have come back into fashion by now! It originally came from a US firm called Raindrops on Roses and is so old that I ordered it by post, which means it must be pre-1999 as anything I've bought from overseas since then has been done online.
The plaid paper is a remnant from a sheet of 12 x 12 from my trusty DCWV stack 9 - probably my most used collection of designer papers. The flower and leaves are cut with Spellbinders dies - I think they are all from the Jewel Flowers set.

I am sharing this with

Love it Jane. What fantastic colours. When we had our wide borders in the garden I loved orange and purple flowers together. It's a shame you've finished up that lovely paper. Barbxx

Super use of designer paper here Jane. Love the vibrant colours and especially like the way you have the plaid on the inside of the card so that it shows on those cut-away corners.
Thank you so much for sharing this with.
