Simple to Spectacular!

this morning I woke up at 5 and didn't get back to sleep, so I got up at 5:30 and decided to try my hand at this Simple to Spectacular that PTI features.  I did not use the Sweet Life set like they did, I needed some more sympathy cards, so I pulled out Forget me Not.
 this is my simple card
I kicked it up a notch with an added layer and more flowers.
And this is my Spectacular!
funny story, I wasn't paying attention to the "forget" stamp and accidentally stamped "Forgot".  oops,
I simply used a black pen to curve in to make the 'e' and then a white gel pen to cover up the rest of the 'o'!  I had great fun thinking of ways to step this up a notch and make it a spectacular card.  I think I might try this more often and get triple the cards out of it too!!

Heart Hugs, friends!
