Stars & Stamps sketch #78

Here's my take on the Stars & Stamps sketch challenge #78 found here. I used all Basic Grey Marjolaine dp for this one, using a SU! Boho Blossoms punch for the flowers and an EK rock fern punch for the leaves. I snipped the leaves from the punched sprays, and just added 2 leaves to each stem. The button brads came from Michaels. The sentiment is from SNSS Poppies & Greetings stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink, and I added a left over strip of DP to the sentiment line just for a little interest.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a fabulous Sunday!

Gorgeous Card Carol - I hope to work on one this week and have been behind while I have been in Summer Card Camp.

On the upside, I've learned all kinds of new things and we have one final week this week. The camp has been awesome, so I'll be sure to take it again next time too!!

Have a super day!!

Carol, this card is beautiful. I love the color combo of blue and green and the plaid background paper. All around great job. Boy it is going to be hot in NH today for the race. I'm going to try to get enough energy up this afternoon to make some cards.
Have a good day.

Great job with the OWH sketch. I like the slightly larger border you left, it frames the flowers perfectly. And those tiny button centers are such a sweet detail too!
