It's funny what a meandering path my cards usually take. I was inspired by the white swirl on the green paper I used (see top card). The paper is by MME, Bohemia, "Backyard "My Journey" brocade/brown. If you look at the top card, the swirl is actually in the paper pattern, but only covers some of the paper; the rest is plain green. I wanted that swirl on all the cards I was making, so I improvised and used my Autumn Leaves swirls v.2 stamp set to create my own.
The meandering path came in when I had to add the little flowers on the front card to cover an embossing emergency that came up. Oopsie! Most of my cards end up that way; me trying to disguise a boo-boo. DOH! This sentiment is by SU, it's called "That's Nice". I think I love this set so much because it reminds me of one of my all-time fav. word sets, Lexicon of Love.
