Hunkydory Love & Best Wishes

For this card I used a couple more "tricks".  

The background was created by cutting both the yellow and the pink paper (Hunkydory - Flutterbye Wishes) with the largest of Spellbinder's Labels 29 Die.  I embossed the yellow piece before taping it in place within the pink frame.  I thought this set off the die cuts nicely.  However . . . the pink was shorter than I wanted for the card.

I had to think about it a bit before figuring out what to do.  I was looking at some of the pieces left over after the Hunkydory die cuts had been punched out and suddenly realized a piece of that would be perfect for the bottom of the card - and even had foiling on it to dress things up.

Then, some Dazzles borders around the outer perimeter of the background and voilà - another "Dazzling Hunkydory" card!
