Thinking of you card featuring Simon Says Stamp

Hello crafty friends!Hope your all having a lovely week so far! Here to share a card for the Card Concept Challenge: Thinking of You.
I love, love breaking out my flowery stamps! It makes me feel like spring is coming! Today is actually so mild here, snow is melting and it actually feels like we might see the first signs of spring:)

I have made my card for the clean and layered category of the challenge.
I used the Friendly Flowers stamp set from Simon Says Stamp, also used the sentiment in the same stamp set. I love how the flowers in this set have almost a messy look? kind of like water color.
I used some random pattern paper strip I had in my stash under the sentiment and added some stitching with my sewing machine for some interest, it turned out a little messier than I wanted but I just went with it.
I added some pearls and that's about it, I tried to keep it simple.

I'm going to start playing around with inlinks again to make my product lists, however the last time I used it, I guess a code broke and it was causing problems to my blog and making pop ups when people would view it, so if you have any problems viewing my blog I'd very much appreciate it if you let me know:)
 Thank you so much for stopping by!! Have a lovely crafty day!:)
