Gotta Love Basic Grey!

A few months ago, I fell in love with Basic Grey paper.  I LOVED their Origins line, and bought quite a few pieces, in hopes of finishing a few layouts (similar to those I had spied at a local scrap store).  Alas, my busy life only seems to allow enough time to make mostly cards.  I'm so glad that summer is coming and I should have more time to finish some scrapping!  Anyways, back to this card! 
I love using yellow, brown, and green together, and when I found this Basic Grey medallion, which I punched out using a 1 3/4 circle punch, I knew my color scheme was set!  First I made a green card, and layered brown (w/a border punch), and marigold on top.  Before adding the marigold, I added a single ribbon decorated with small flowers.  Next, I cut two scalloped circles from the Easter 2010 cartridge (one at 2", the next at 2 1/4").  After my pieces were cut, I used pop dots between each layer to add dimension, then used regular adhesive to adhere all three layers to the card.  At the end, I used my Quickie Glue Pen to add "bling" to the flower.   ~Hoppy Crafting!
