Torn Epic Day This and That

I had a very difficult time getting a good picture
of this card.  I will say that it was great fun to make!
The technique is called "Serendipity Squares", 
although mine is a large rectangle layer.
For Serendipity Squares, you tear up pieces of
Designer Series Paper.  I used the Epic Day 
This and That DSP on page 154.
Glue the torn pieces to a base piece of card stock.
Once glued and trimmed, stamp or emboss over the
collage as desired.  You can cut up your piece, or use
it as a layer (as I did).  I added 2 blossoms from the 
Blossom Party Originals Die, cutting 1/2 inch circle flower
centers from the Epic Day DSP.
Sponge all layers and pieces with Early Espresso ink
and the look is complete.

Colors:  Very Vanilla, Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral,
