One of my favorite things to do (and I have Jennifer McGuire’s oft-published encouragement and permission to do this) is to use stamps in ways rather different from what they were designed for.
The sheaf of rice was probably a stand-alone that worked very well here as an enthusiastic background for the flower heart. Covering the flower pot with a small background pattern and a silver bow embellishment balanced off the rather outspoken flower heart and kept it from being too top-heavy. Anyone getting this card will surely know that they’re loved . . .
