Above is the clipping I got from the Gooseberry Patch catalog. I really admire their product drawings but it was hard to get one that worked well for card making. I layered this one on various pastel papers.
Using the idea of the gift bag from my mother's blog, I got this background for an old-fashioned postcard I found in the Reminisce magazine.
This is a picture from a rose nursery catalog on the left, with a rubber stamp heart and a sticker.
This is a piece of clip art, and the heart is a rubber stamped image on silver cardboard, embossed in white.
Another piece of clip art, mounted on a couple layers of pastel paper.
