Best Wishes Card #2

I got a request at the office to make a card for another person that's leaving at the end of the month. I did an origami flower card before, and I didn't want to do the same card again because I think that's boring. I still kept the flower theme, but used my Tim Holtz die instead and used some scrap pieces of paper to create the flower on this card. I guess this was another excuse to use my Cuttlebug. I am feeling compelled to use it more since I dropped more money on it than anything else in my crafty arsenal. This was also an excuse to use the American Crafts brads that I found on sale at A.C. Moore this past weekend. Dang it, I'm a sucker for clearance sales. I got a set in bubble gum pink too. I had to consciously make an effort to pry myself from the clearance shelf...otherwise, I'd have come home with many more colors.

Card Specs:
Ink: Colorbox chalk ink in Chestnut Roan, Warm Red
Stamp: Martha Stewart- Patterns (floral), SEI- Moravia (sentiment)
Die: Sizzix- Tim Holtz Alterations Tattered Flowers (flowers)
Punch: We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper, Fiskars Apron Lace border punch
Paper: Die Cuts With a View- Citrus (stripe)
Brad: American Crafts, Large Brads- Dandelion
