FMS82 - Green Quadrefoil

Greetings everyone! Here's my CAS take on this weeks Freshly Made Sketch #82.

I just picked up this quadrefoil template from The Crafters Workshop at my local stamping store.  I laid it over a piece of vintage cream cardstock and used Pear ink from Fresh Ink and a big sponge dauber to create the look of designer paper. I had a really hard time waiting for the ink to dry to finish up this card!

Sentiment is from Verve and stamped onto light green cardstock that almost matched the Pear ink color.  I used the vintage cabinet die (the smaller insert) from Tim Holtz Alterations on another piece of vintage cream cardstock and then turned it upside down. This allowed me to put the circle sentiment right where I wanted it.

The flower is left naked (no color) and I added a small yellow button to the center. Leaf punch from Martha Stewart Crafts used to cut out the leaves that I added behind the flower. Lastly, cream satin ribbon used at top and bottom.

That's it for today! Thanks for stopping by!
