well, actually, if you cut cleverly, you can use a bit of both! for this card i used part of the "reverse" side which has gorgeous faded vintage style flowers, and layered it onto the soft yellow cardstock in the kit:
i used several different graduated flower dies, and combined scraps of pink paislee, sassafras & glitz papers... with lots and lots of crumpling and ink distressing... to make a cluster of lovely blossoms which coordinate rather nicely with the girls' paperie flowers and fancy sassafras brads.
then i used part of a rub-on from my own stash, and a bit of embroidery floss to create a custom sentiment to finish my card. i printed the word "HAPPY" on my computer and used it as a template to punch holes for hand-stitching; there is a quick step-by-step illustration of this on my personal blog.
