FMS #200

Hi everyone! Here is my take on the 200th sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches.

I used the leaf embossing folder from Sizzix to emboss a piece of white cardstock. Next it is cut it down to fit the dark green cardbase based upon the sketch.

I used the same green cardstock and added some lighter green to cut the leaf/twigs out.  I really like how they match the embossing. Dies are from Memory box and My Favorite Things.

The flower is cut out using the Blueprints #14 set from My Favorite Things. Tied some light green bakers twine into a bow on the button and then decided it needed a bit "more."

Before gluing down the flower, I took a bit of natural bakers twine and made a bigger bow so to speak to go behind the flower. Like how it turned out.

That is it for today. Thanks for popping by!
