Gotta Love Double-Sided Papers!

Here's a really quick and easy card that requires virtually no stamping (yes, sometimes that can be a good thing!) and is great for using up scraps of Scrapbooking papers (that's definitely a good thing!)
Take a piece of double-sided paper about the same size as your cardfront, and release some tension by ripping it down the middle. If you tear towards you, you get a nice rough edge that you can do some direct-to-paper with. I love the fact that SU inkpads have finger-grips on the sides, so I *hardly ever* drop an inkpad in my lap anymore! Then pull out your co-ordinating Bouquet flower punch and use up some more scraps of paper by punching out some little flowers (the 2-way glue pen has a nice fine point for adhering these). A piece of ribbon and a stamped sentiment, and you're done!
I've used:
"Spring Showers" Double-sided papers
Naturals Ivory cardstock
Chocolate Grosgrain Ribbon
Chocolate Chip and Creamy Caramel ink
Bouquet Flower punch
