Compose a Card . . . Daydreams of You

This card sort of kind of fits Becky Oehler's latest challenge, compose a card. You can find details on her blog here. I was actually thinking of it for a few days and I just couldn't wrap my mind around making a card that measured 5x7. Also, I'm trying to collect a stack of cards to send to Operation Write Home and their preferred size is A2, so this card measures A2, but does adhere to the general proportions and colors in Becky's challenge.

Can you tell I'm Johnny-one-note lately? I just love the Through the Trees set and for some reason, I keep using this tree image when what sold me on the set was the birch trees. :) I just really like it and I really like it in white. I pictured this card as a daydream, dreaming of the love you have for someone you miss. So I deliberately chose the 'thinking of you' sentiment rather than 'I love you' because the card really expresses missing someone in a romantic sense. Thanks for looking.

Stamps: PTI Through the Trees, hearts background set and random flourish
Paper: Tangerine, Spring Rain, Raspberry Fizz
Ink: white craft, versamark
Other: white detail embossing powder, Martha Stewart heart punch blanks, fiskars edge punch, rhinestones

This looks awesome! I love the main image. I like how you used Text Styles on the bottom of the tree. It almost looks like it's supposed to be the grass. Nice work!

This is gorgeous! I love this tree done in white embossing with the added little hearts. And I agree that the text under the tree works perfectly.

Great take on the challenge! I love those little heart in the tree and the way you grounded the tree with the "text" grass.
