Leafy Borders

Hi! Here's a card I made after puzzling over the sketch challenge at CC&S! I used some leafy border images, with a sentiment in between. I coloured the leaves and berries with inks, and then added Nuvo Drops to give the berries some dimension. I haven't got a deep blue in Nuvo Drops, but if you use clear over inks, the clear seems to take up the colour of the ink, so you end up with a blue drop instead of a clear drop :)




I'm entering this one in the following challenges:

CAS Colours & Sketches:
Color Throwdown:
Watercooler Wednesday: 'All About Birthdays'



Ingredients:
Border images from Vectorstock
Adirondack Inks: Meadow, Denim
Nuvo Drops: Morning Dew

Wow, Jen, what a beautifully crafted clean and simple card! Love the simplicity of those leaf and berry borders above and below the greeting. Keeping it simple with the overall white, the narrow deep blue border and the blue and green colouring really adds to the impact of this card. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.
