Hardwood and Blooms - PPA225

As soon as I saw the sketch from Pals Paper Arts, I had an idea of what I wanted to do. It's always nice when what you see in your mind works out when you actually put it on paper too! :) Surprisingly the hardest part of this card was getting all the angles cut right.
As I've mentioned before, I'm really enjoying coloring much more than I ever expected when Stampin' Up! first released the Blendabilities markers. They are so much fun and I find it very relaxing to color with them.

Recipe (all Stampin' Up!)

Stamps: Hardwood, Bloom with Hope

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Baked Brown Sugar, Old Olive
Paper: Crumb Cake, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White card stock
Misc: Pearls, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive Blendabilities
