Marigold Morning- Everything Will Be Ok

Hello stampers,
     How did you spend your day yesterday? I PURGED! Yes, I did along with organizing my craft room, I feel like I'll never get done. But yesterday, I came across I think it was 4 quart-size ziploc bags full of stuff- components to cards never finished, card fronts/trading cards from long-ago swaps, remnants of cards that fell apart, etc. Some I kept & will re-make into cards that my mom can probably use & others, unfortunately, were thrown away due to damage, etc. This new stash doesn't even take into account the cards that I have sitting in an old Michael's cube or the unfinished Paper Pumpkins I have. EEK! I really have to figure out what to do with it all because I have more than enough cards to last me for a very long time & I make more each time I do a post. I so need HELP!
     So yesterday I found a part of a card that I really wanted to duplicate, I'm going to call the technique Block/Grid Technique, since I'm not sure if it has a name or not. What it entails is stamping a design, the original card was a solid image so that is what I used I'm not sure a lined image would work but it could. So I used the Marigold Morning Stamp Set, stamping the solid image with Blushing Bride Ink & the lined image with Polished Pink Ink on Basic White Cardstock. Next, I cut different sized blocks (the center may look like 1 image but it is actually 2) then used a Sponge Dauber to add Blushing Bride Ink to all sides up to the floral image. Once I was done, I then adhered the pieces back together with Multipurpose Glue to a piece of Polished Pink Cardstock. For the background layer, I used Blushing Bride Cardstock & embossed it with one of the Basics 3D Embossing Folders before adding it to a Basic White Cardstock base. I attached the stamped image to the embossed layer using Stampin' Dimensionals. I then used the Charming Sentiments Bundle to stamp a sentiment using Polished Pink Ink on Basic White Cardstock then die-cut it using the dies from the bundle. After I had the card assembled I added the 2021-23 In Color Opal Rounds to finish the card.
