I love the Hardwood background stamp and I particularly like it stamped on Pool Party! I used Early Espresso on the Hardwood stamp, then distressed it a bit with a sponge and Crumb Cake ink.
The stamp set included the branch with just a few leaves, but there are also the flower stem as I have used in my card here, or berries to add to the branch, depending on the season.
When I cut out the images and placed them onto the card I thought that the outline around the images was too bright. I softened them up a bit by using a sponge and some Crumb Cake ink around the outline.
I decided to use the new Thoughtful Banner Bundle to make a thank you sentiment to add to my card.
A double bow in linen thread is the perfect accent for this card.
I hope that you like today's project. Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions!
Thanks for stopping by!
