Reflections

Happy Friday.
Meet today's card.  
Spring has arrived and the garden and trees are abounding with shades of greens.

I began my card by placing the leave stamp inside my Misti.  I coloured directly onto the stamp using my Zig markers, sprayed with water and stamped.  
After the leaves were dry, I stamped the sentiment using my Misti again with black Memento ink.
I cut the panel down to a smaller size then scored lines top and bottom of my card front to give more interest when I added the stamped panel.
That's it....a very clean and simple card.
