Nature, torn edges OR both!?

Happy weekend stamping friends!!! Every other Tuesday we post a new challenge at StampNation. I know, it is Saturday, but I've been a creating fool lately and I have SO much I want to share with you :)

Back to the challenge...this week the challenge is a bit different, it's your choice. What does that mean? Well, you pick a theme of nature, a technique of torn edges OR challenge yourself by using both, which is exactly what I did!! I started my card by stamping some of the images from Nature Walk and embellishing the one image with some flowers and pearls. I had been seeing a lot of folded dsp like I used on the top portion of my card around the blog world, so I gave it a try. To do that, I simply ran a bit of adhesive along the Vanilla cardstock and then scrunched my dsp as I went along. Next, I tore the edge and added a little bit of Daffodil Delight dsp to the back and tore that as well! At that point I was ready to start putting it all together and thought that it was a bit blah. So, I stamped 2 frames on either side of the card using the Four Frames stamp set and added a sentiment from Ting Tags. Now, it was ready to be assembled. I added a few more layers than normal, but was able to maintain an overall CAS look!
