FTL 32

I figured it was time for another square sketch. This one really is just a guideline. I made my card 4.25x4.25, but feel free to adapt it to any size square. Also, feel free to make that circle any size, and although my extra item is a flower, make it whatever you like! What's great about this sketch is that you can easily apply it to being clean and simple or very layered and done up.
When I was getting the sketch ready, I had one set in mind- Friends 'Til the End. I knew I wanted to use the flower and a sentiment from that set. I found a perfect sized button for the flower center from the Melon Berry Vintage button collection. I am also just a little bit obsessed with pairing Melon Berry and Dark Chocolate right now, I threw in some vintage cream for this one (mainly because I already had a flower stamped on a piece when I was making this).

Supplies: Stamps: Friends 'Til the End Ink: Dark Chocolate, Melon Berry Paper: Vintage Cream, Melon Berry, Dark Chocolate Accessories, etc.: Circle nestabilities, vintage button, floss
