Sweet Pea

I made this card for a baby shower. I thought it was a good gender-neutral card and the mommy didn't know what she was having. I got to use my Green Thumb (Papertrey Ink) set again for this one. I had fun playing with only 2 colors, and really only one. The only place Old Olive isn't used is as the card base. The peas are stamped-off Old Olive. I think it turned out nicely. I wanted to mimic the peas with my Dotted BG on the bottom, and I wanted to keep the embellishments simple. Here's the info:

Stamp Sets: Green Thumb, Dotted BG
Card Stock: Certainly Celery, Old Olive, Whisper White
Ink: Old Olive
Accessories: Marvy Uchida mega oval punch and giga scalloped oval punch, Piercing tool and guide, SU! distressing tool, sponge, Dimensionals

Let me know what you think, I love to hear your comments. Take care!
