Thinking of you

Did this card for a challenge over at
a blog that challenges you to dust off all the things you have
purchase stuck in a drawer and haven't used
I use Cord'nations card stock for the base a2 card
HAD to get this and it's been sitting in my pile of card stock
for a least 6 months which really isn't long in the scheme of my unused stash
next it it a mat from DCWV Citrus stack
then two patter papers from Basicgrey
next I used a stamp I have I am pretty sure I got at ACMoore when
they were having a 50% off sale it's marked f-2211 Santa Rosa 1999
really had to dust it off 
I inked with black staz-on onto Bristol XL paper
it's an all purpose artist paper
I seem to have trouble stamping but with this paper I get good results
it's very thick and textured on one side
after stamping I colored with markers from Marvy
use a circle die from Spellbinders embossed leaving the die on
I inked the edges with Color Box Dune
put a dark brown Spellbinders scalloped circle behind
flower cut from Plantin Schoolbook
