Casual Thinking of You Card

Good day everyone! Yesterday I was searching through some challenges and found three good ones to combine. I made this Casual Thinking of You Card for the following:
While deciding what flowers to use on my card, I looked around my desk and found a stash of already made extras from previous projects. The Mixed Bunch stamped flower and Secret Garden leaves I used were made last May for this card HERE. When stamping I tend to make two or three of everything and pick the best one, the extras go into a plastic container to use later. The problem is, I seldom look in the plastic container and just make something new. I need to challenge myself to use more of the pretty things that are already made. Keeping this in mind, I dug through my paper stash and found a piece of patterned paper from the Moonlight paper stack for the background. I wrapped a piece of Old Olive twine around the paper three times and then adhered directly to the kraft card. The Verve Thinking of You sentiment was stamped using Blackberry Bliss ink and that was it. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!
