You Are Always On My Mind

I saw a card using the Pocket Silhouettes stamps set that I liked and decided to create a card based on it for my upcoming Stamp Club meeting.
Here is the link to the card I originally found:

For my card I changed the layout so it would appear at the bottom of the card.  I also wanted to incorporate the Upsy Daisy stamp set so I used it as a background stamp,  "pretty cool" huh!

My card base is Whisper White followed by a layer of Chocolate Chip that I stamped the Upsy Daisy flowers with a VersaMark pad.  Then I embossed the sentiment with Winter White EP.  I recommend embossing the sentiment first and then stamping the flowers.  I did it the opposite way and my flowers hadn't dried enough before I put the EP down and I had to use a small paintbrush to get rid of the excess powder where it wasn't suppose to be.
I added a piece of Chocolate Chip Designer Paper and Kiwi Kiss that I used the Scallop Punch and Paper Piercing Tool.  Then I stamped the flowers from Pocket Silhouettes using Kiwi Kiss, Tangerine Tango and Pacific Point Blue on Whisper White and punched them out using the 1 1/4" Circle punch and layered them on the 1 3/8" Circle in the matching color.  I also punched smaller circles using the 1/2" circle punch.  I glued the smaller circles down and raised the larger ones up using foam mounting tape to complete the card.
