As always, I went straight to my stash of textured paper to see what I could see. In the end, I ditched that idea and I went to peruse my stash of wallpaper sample books. The design I selected ended up getting flipped to the backside to show just the texture of it.
I stamped watercolor paper with the image and again on tissue paper. I crumpled the tissue paper and overlayed a small piece of it over of the original stamped image for depth. The metal rimmed vellum tag reads "thinking of you" and is much more vivid IRL.
Oh, yes, I almost forgot! I used a way cool tool sent to my by the one and only Ms. Anne of Ryan ... it pierces your paper by running it through the groove of your Score-Pal. Love it, Anne! Thank you! It may not show up in the photo, but I used it around the edges of the main image panel.
Thanks for looking and have a great day!

I love your card, and how lucky to have wallpaper books, ive heard of a few people being able to get them from the wallpaper stores when they want to get rid of them. I might have to look into that:) I love the piece you used, and your flower is BEAUTIFUL!!! Awesome job on the challenge hun, and I too will be back in the morning to play somemore:) off to bed I go:)
