Thinking of You - Colorful Seasons

I've had a need for some Thinking of You and Sympathy cards lately and so I created this card. It's really simple, but as you know, that's what I like!

 I've actualy had some of the parts/pieces of this card on my work table for quite awhile now -but today was the day to actually finish it!

My card uses the Colorful Seasons Bundle - this is a gorgeous, year round stamp set - I have been using this quite a bit lately.  One of my favorite components of this bundle are the thinlets - the scallop edge that I used on this card was created with a thinlet from this set.  

Here's how this card went together: 
(please scroll to the end of this post for measurements and shopping links for this card) 
I started with a Shimmery White card base, and added a strip of designer paper from the Delightful Daisy pack.  I used the scallop thinlet to create the Bermuda Bay scallop.  

I then cut a smaller piece of Shimmery White cardstock and stamped the branch in Early Espresso ink, and added the flowers, using Bermuda Bay ink.  

I added some little splatters by loading an aquapainter with Early Espresso ink and then tapping it over the card front.  This is fun to do - and each time I do this, it turns out a little differently - depending on how much ink or how much water is in the aquapainter. 

I stamped "thinking of you" on a small piece of Shimmery White cardstock and wrapped some Very Vanilla thick Baker's Twine around this piece and attached it to the card with dimensionals. 

Here's the inside of the card -  I left it pretty simple - I wanted to have plenty of room to write a short note.
