Love Letters

This is one of those unusual cards that started as an idea in my head and actually was completed as planned. That doesn't happen often. The challenge at Stampendous is love letters and the challenge at Mark's Finest Papers Friends of Speedy is tissue. I started with a lilac background stamped with the butterfly flourishes (Stampendous). The flower is 2/3 of the giant tattered flower from Tim Holtz which I cut from his music tissue paper. The love letters stamp (Stampers Anonymous) was stamped on vellum, cut out, and adhered to the background. the white card base is a simple frame for the card.

I really like this card!!! Is this Tim Holtz product in a roll and it's pretty thick? I've looked at something at Michael's crafts 2 or 3 times but passed on it each time, if this is the product you used, I definately want to get some. Love it!!!
