"All I Have Seen" Card

As today's featured designer on CARD A DAY BLOG, I made this quick card for the "With Faith" theme.  I say it was quick because I had the blue designer paper base with the square already cut out and the punched border (Martha Stewart) in my "extra parts" basket.  This is where I put all the extra or unused bits and pieces and is usually the first place I go when I need to put together a card.  Nothing is harder for me to do than cut a full 12 x 12 inch piece of designer paper down for a card!  lol
I stamped the sentiment (Stampin' Up--"All I Have Seen") with Coffee Archival Ink on scrap yellow paper then taped it behind the opening.  I thought that there was too much space around the wording so I used my trusty Tim Holtz ruler (which makes it very easy to find the center) and penciled in a border.  Then I went over it with a brown LePen.
Accent is an adhesive chipboard flower from K & Company (SW Nature Icons).  Seam binding ribbon from 7 Gypsies Victorian set.  Everything was attached to a pre-folded ivory card base.
