HSS Theme Challenge – Thinking of You Sentiment

Hello!  This week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge was a little challenging.  I just could not come up with something to create.  However, I remembered that my Aunt Terry asked me if I could create a card with birds.  So Ta Dum!!!!  A “Thinking of You” card with a bird.

It was perfect because I had been wanting to use the Punch Potpourri stamp set for some time.  This set is a Level 1 Hostess set (#120124) and also one of Shelli Gardner’s Signature Collection stamp sets.   Being a collector of punches, I was able to use the matching punch (2-Step Bird #117191).

I tried to do something a little different — rather hoarding accessories (rhinestones, Designer Series Paper, etc.), I actually used them on my card. What a concept!!!  I have been known to purchase lots of accessories and not use them.  The wording “Thinking of You” is from the stamp set Three Little Words which by the way, is also one of free Sale-A-Bration stamps you can earn.  I hope you enjoy this card.
