FTL 43

Hello! Happy Friday! Here's this week's sketch. I figured it was time for a square card again. I wanted something ultra simple, but more than a single layer. This is what I came up with: The dimensions I used:
Spring Moss strip: 3-7/8x1/2
Ripe Avocado dotted strip: 3-1/8x7/8
Dark Chocolate strip: 3-1/2x3/8
Circles: Approximately 1-7/8 diameter and 2-1/8 diameter
Card Size: 4-1/4x4-1/4
The card is quite simple. I stamped and cut out the tree, then arranged the papers as I had sketched out, and added a greeting.
Supplies:
Stamps: Trendy Trees, Birthday Basics
Ink: Ripe Avocado, Dark Chocolate
Paper: Vintage Cream, Ripe Avocado, Spring Moss, Dark Chocolate, Bitty Dots (Avocado), Kraft
Accessories, etc.: pop dots, circle nestabilities
As always, feel free to leave a link to your card in the comments!
