A|Muse - Seasonal Branch

Today, I have the card I made for the homebound ministry and a few others in April.  I had a few thank you and thinking of you cards I needed to get out too.  I ended up making 12 cards and thought it a perfect any occasion card.

This card was inspired by a card Marisa Alvarez created for Madison Mingle 2012 - last MarchI ended up buying the set from her last year at Mingle and this Spring I finally created my version.  

The branch and flowers are an A|Muse stamp set Seasonal Branch.  The woodgrain cardstock is also from A|Muse.

The image was stamped on PTI white cardstock that is die cut with Lil Inkers Rectangular Stitched Mats.   The inks are PTI Dark Chocolate, PTI Simply Chartreuse and Memento Angel Pink.  
The flowers are a cluster of 3.  I stamped 2 clusters on an extra piece of white cardstock and cut them out to add some dimension.  I used E29 Copic marker for the brown center of the flowers. The "Just a Note" sentiment is from a Crafts Meow set "Happy as a Lark".

I got a new watermark recently, created by Karen Giron.  I love her blog "the sweetest thing" and I saw on her side bar she sells watermarks.  Really cute ones too.

Inks: Memento Angel Pink, PTI Dark Chocolate and Simply Chartreuse
