In My Thoughts

By tearing a piece of cardstock you add a nice layer to your card.  You don't always need straight edges and you can keep tearing away until you get the size and shape you want.  I wanted to keep this card more about the sentiment than the stamping, but I felt it needed a little more at the bottom so I added some flowers that I punched  from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch.  I also used my Crop-a-Dile and Early Espresso cardstock to punch the small dot in the center of the flowers.  I thought they needed that little extra color.   

To make today's card I used the following Stampin' Up products:
Cardstock:  Pear Pizzazz #119795, Very Vanilla #101650, Early Espresso #119686
Designer Series Paper:  Greenhouse Gala #117167 (for the flowers)
Ink:  Crumb Cake #121030, Pear Pizzazz #119784
Stamp Sets:  Word Play #120308 wood mount and #120651 clear mount, Thoughts & Prayers #113252
Punch:  Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack #118309
Accessories:  Crop-a-Dile #108362, Glue Dots #103683 (to adhere the punched flowers)
