French Foliage

I had some time this weekend to use the sketch from Sketch Frenzy Friday to make a card.  Here's the sketch I worked with:

And here is my card, using French Foliage and lots of sponging:

I really think my favorite cards to make are masculine, which I know is unusual.  Maybe it's because I don't have to fuss with them too much.  Of course it helps that my favorite colors are those that are traditionally used for masculine cards.

Products used:

Stamps:  French Foliage; Something to Celebrate; Very Vintage Jumbo Wheel
Cardstock:  Early Espresso; Always Artichoke; Cherry Cobbler; Crumb Cake
Ink:  Early Espresso; Always Artichoke; Cherry Cobbler; Crumb Cake; Basic Black
Accessories:  Sponges; Linen Thread; Mini Library Clip

Cheers
Karren
