Plant Hope

No palm trees here in Connecticut!  I have been going through my stamps, trying to use some sets I have not even touched!  This weeks ColourQ challenge82 and SCS Sketch Challenge 330 were my inspiration!

I clear embossed the palm tree and used a brayer over the image in the challenge colors, Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kizz and Pear Pizazz.   I also embossed the sentiment in whitel  The ribbon is Kiwi Kiss, woefully retired!

Inside, I stamped off the palm tree image in Pear Pizazz inside for a watermark effect (love to finish cards off this way!)

stamps:  Plant Hope
ink:  Pear Pizazz, Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze, Versamark
cardstock:  Naturals White, Always Artichoke, Baja Breeze, Pear Pizazz hostess paper
accessories:  Square Lattice embossing folder, kiwi kiss ribbon (retired), pearls, clear and white embossing powder
