CAS Mixed Bunch for Paper Players #236

Hello there! This week at The Paper Players, my friend Ann Schach has a fabulous challenge for us. It's Clean and Simple week and we are focusing on a floral theme. So perfect for Spring, don you think? 
I was determined to use a lot of white space on this card, something I tend to struggle with. I decided that the big, bold blossom from the SU Mixed Bunch set was going to be the focus for my card with a fun sentiment from My Favorite Things. I needed a card to send to a friend I haven't connected with in a while, so this was perfect. I added some leaves from the Bird Builder Punch for dimension and a big honkin' rhinestone for sparkle.

Still, I felt that the card needed just a wee bit more, so I went over to my washi tape collection and grabbed a couple of rolls that would coordinate with the card colors. I am absolutely obsessed with washi tape right's really bad. I think at last count, I have over 130 rolls. I guess I need to start using it on my cards more. What crafting supplies do you hoard?
Please join us over at The Paper Players
The challenge will close Friday March 20th at Noon (PST).
