How To Make a Beautiful,Textured Card

Here's a few tips for making a beautiful textured card from scraps. Just like every other paper crafter, I have a scraps in every color, texture, and size. How does one combine those into a quick card that isn't to garish or confusing to look at?
This card is made entirely from left-overs. To keep it simple and to help the design flow I used layers of rectangles in different sizes. I used a rounded diecut and ornate red frame to contrast the pastel colors and straight lines that dominate this design.
ScraPerfect's Best Glue Ever works on multiple surfaces. With everything I had going on here it was the only choice! I had to have a fine tipped applicator for the detail pieces. The NO-Clog Writing Cap, also by ScraPerfect, saved the day.

The frame is diecut from Rinea's Ruby/Ruby Starstruck Foiled Paper. The derigible and sentiment are diecut from Rinea's Turquoise/Turquoise Starstruck Foiled PaperI finished off the card with dots of glitter glue. They add another pop of color and frame the central diecut.
