I used one of my favorite sets, perfect for a quick designs, Ferns and Fiddles.
I chose a piece of patterned paper from the Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden pad.   I stamped the ferns using ink from Adirondack in Pesto and Lettuce and ColorBox in Fresh Green.   I used a strip from another paper in the pad and stamped the sentiment on it.  I used a thin silk ribbon that I colored with a Copic marker to make a bow-sort of.  It was so thin that when I crinkled it, it kind of stayed that way and I couldn’t get it to fluff back up, lol!  I used a button with some twine and a leaf pin.   No coloring-very simple, yet elegant!

    Your cards for this release are awesome, Danielle, but I just had to stop here and ogle this a little more. Love the dreamy quality of the stamped panel. So pretty and earthy.
