A Freshly Made Sketch in Green

After last week, I was (and still am) in desperate need of some paper therapy, so I used a Freshly Made Sketch to make a card for the Heart 2 Heart and Papercraft Star challenges to go green.  I had some leaves cut from Sweet Leaf cardstock that were leftover from a partially done card (which y'all will hopefully see tomorrow), so I dabbed them with Olive and Garden Green and then heavily sponged the edges with Olive.  To make the flower I cut the flower in three sizes, sponged the edges with Olive, curled the petals and stacked them.  I then attached the completed flower with a piece of pop up foam so that the flower would keep its 3D shape.

Here is the layout:
Thank you fro stopping by.  Until next time, Hansi
