Ninety Six!

Time for another sketch! I've been apparently on a bit of a vertical orientation rut. I'll try to do something different next week! Here's the sketch. The patterned piece is 4x3.25. I had this stamped lime paper for quite some time. I did some rock'n'roll stamping using Spring Moss and Ripe Avocado, then went around the rind with lime stickles. The finishing touch was to add in some tiny dots in the remaining white space. I struggled with a sentiment for the card. That many limes just didn't say "birthday" to me, so I finally went with a just because. When all else fails, right!

Supplies: Stamps: Fruitful, Round and Round Ink: Black, Spring Moss, Ripe Avocado Paper: Spring Moss, Black, White Accessories, etc.: lime stickles
