2. Cut out your flowers to create a 3 dimensional flower. The petals can be solid cardstock, patterns to compliment your card. Scraps from other projects are perfect for this-always save them!  Glue the flower on the top left corner.

3. On a contrasting color square of cardstock (2.5x1) stamp ‘thank you’ on that and place on the bottom right of the card.

I bought my stamp for just $5 on this website: http://store.scrapbooking-warehouse.com/329801.html?cmp=froogle&kw=329801
