Thinking of you card and TX rubber stamp show info

Today was my turn to share a new creation on the Just for Fun Rubber Stamps blog, and I've been playing with several of their stamps to create my card. 

I started out by stamping the rose onto copic blending card, colored it with copics and fussy cut. While I was fussy cutting, I realized that it wasn't really necessary to do that.  I could have just stamped the rose on the paper and worked around it. 

Next I stamped the beautiful vintage address stamp onto my card stock. The clock stamp image was punched out using a 1 1/2" circle punch, and adhered over the address stamp. In the next step I adhered the fussy cut rose. I did stamp the bloom again, fussy cut and used pop up dots. Over the clock I stamped a postmark image and a cancellation mark using turquoise and brown ink. (By the way, the small stamp and cancellation mark on the very top of the card are part of the gorgeous address stamp.)
I also received some cute heart stamps in my design team packet, and used them to add to the card. I embellished with a little butterfly and some sticky pearls. 

Product list:
(all stamps are from JFF)
SU and recollections card stock, xpress blending card
copics for coloring
MS butterfly punch, sticky pearls. 
various distress inks and memento ink

I would love to play along here:
