My card today is destined for Shelli Gardner, CEO and Co-Founder of Stampin' Up!  She is recovering from numerous broken bones sustained in a horseback riding accident. I hope this simple card adds a little paper crafting love to ease her pain as she mends.

Tip #10 of My Top 10 Ways to Get Your Stampin' Mojo Going is: EDIT!  This card is a perfect example of how a relatively clean "canvas" can still have a WOW! factor.  If you are building a card that is becoming "confused," pull a few things off, reposition and see if that makes a difference!  Otherwise, take a walk for a mental break (as I suggested yesterday) in Tip #9.

The Stampin' Up! Pansy Punch and Flower Shop stamp set are designed to
work together (love the results).  However, there's a little trick.  Be
sure to stamp the images in the same position shown on the cover.  That
way they will line up for cropping with the Pansy Punch. 

Buy the Pansy Punch and
Flower Shop stamp set as a bundle and save 15%.  See ALL Stampin' Up! Savings Bundles!

I also relied on Tip #4, a "CASE" Study.  Since I wanted to quickly put a card together for Shelli, I found the card below by Laurie Chilton (a member of my Stampin' Pretty Pals Community) in my "cool cards" folder!  Thanks, Laurie for the inspiration.
