Cas-ual Sketch

Happy Hump Day! Which is actually my Friday, so I'm happier about it than most :)

I'm playing along with Cas-ual Fridays super cute sketch tonight.

Here's my take

I started with a white card base. I stamped the sentiment from Hero Arts, Sending Smiles Messages to create a text background. The sentiment is actually meant for the inside of the card  but it worked perfectly for what I wanted. The added a cardstock strip in create the cut off. Both the sentiment and strip are pumice stone.

The flower (Hero Arts, Sweet Petals) was colored with dried marigold, ripe persimmon, and spiced marmalade. The leaves (Hero Arts, 3 Leaves) are colored with crushed olive, peeled paint, and forest moss. It's hard to see in the photo but I curled the leaves for some dimension.

The large sentiment is from the same Hero Arts set as the small and was stamped in Jet Black Arcival ink (Ranger).

Thanks for looking! Hope you enjoyed this clean and simple card :)
