How about some office sparkle?

So I'm trying to figure out what card to do for a swap...any input would be GREATLY appreciated!

The card base is Cool Caribbean cardstock with the large flower from the "Office Accoutrement" stamp set stamped in Versamark. Then I inked up the "Linen" background in Cool Caribbean ink and stamped it over the top.

The memo stamp is on Whisper White cs that has had the edges sponged with Chocolate Chip ink. Then I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to line up and stamp the sentiment from "Warmest Regards" in Chocolate Chip ink. I mounted this on a piece of CC cardstock and then used the new round tab punch and added the little tab on the left side. I added a white eyelet to the tab for a little something extra. **wink wink**

The little piece of notebook looking paper is actually a small piece of the new Notations double sided paper that was punched with the new spiral punch. I mounted this on the cardbase and then mounted the memo piece on top.

The flower was stamped on Cool Caribbean ink on the same cardstock and then cut out with my paper snips. I took my 2-way glue pen and went around the edges of the flower and then sprinkled on some Dazzling Diamonds glitter (now I'm thinking maybe some faux stitching might have been nice...hmmmm)

I punched two small holes in the center of the flower and tied a bit of chocolate grosgrain through. Mounted this over the top of the rest and that was it. Thanks for checking in!!

This is beautiful...I love the "officey" look of it all! I don't necessarily know how the flower fits in with this set (I guess I would have to see how it is laid out in the spring mini). Plus, I really like the layer with the spiral punch!
