A Flower Shop Feel for Fall

I wasn't happy with the thank you card I made yesterday so I thought I would try a new one.  I do like this one much better.  I found this fun layout by Shauna at a Card a Day.  I thought I would change the colors up for more of a fall look and go from there.  

I also liked the torn edge paper too.  I use a little trick to get my layers to look good torn.  I make the back layer longer, I usually don't cut the back layer until I'm done with the tearing part.  I even up the bottom edges on both layers and then I rip my card stock.  Then I slide the top layer up a little so it shows the layer and I mark the top of the back layer to where I need to trim it up to look like an even layer on all edges.  Now for this one, my back layer strip wasn't very long to begin with so what I ended up doing was trimming the top layer just a little to make it all look even.  You do whatever it takes to make it look good!!!  

I used the "thank you" from the "An Open Heart" set.  

The base of my card is Whisper White.  The decorative paper is the new Tangelo Twist color and the torn card stock panel is Pumpkin Pie.  I stamped the "Flower Shop" flower using Tangelo Twist.  I also stamped it again using the black Memento ink pad.  I punched out the center using the 3/4" circle punch.  I set the center and the flower on Dimensionals.  

I tied the ribbon in a knot and then I cut it off the spool.  I taped the raw ends on the back of the panel and then taped the panel in place.  

This was a super fun and easy card to make!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

Cute card. I like the way you said you tear your black layer to "match" the other layer. It looks really nice.
