clean and simple sentiment

For cardmakers, often we focus our work on putting an image on a front of a card and let the sentiment be somewhat of an afterthought.  Today I wanted to make the sentiment center stage on this card.

 

The design itself is clean and simple but has enough detail to make it interesting.   On the main panel the background was stamped with the dogwood branch from Mark’s Finest Papers Dogwood Blossoms set in versamark.   Using images to make background paper is such a great way to get the maximum use of all your images!  The sentiment, from the same set, was stamped Memento Rich Cocoa ink.   The leaf die is my latest purchase – it is just a portion of a die from Cheery Lynn Dies and the detail on the leaves is very nice.   The butterfly punch is from Martha Stewart.

All the paper is from Mark’s Finest Papers – Florida Peach, Sage Green and White Linen.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
