The Hedgerow

I'm still trying to use up my snippets and made this card for this week's Freshly Made Sketches challenge.  As everything is from my snippets drawer I'm also in Pixie's Crafty Snippets Playground.



Woodware The Hedgerow stamp
Versafine Olympia Green ink
Clear embossing powder
Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder
Woodware Corner Rounder punch
Brown and amber mirri card
Amber patterned paper

I stamped and embossed the image, trimmed it and rounded the top corners.  The image and a strip of amber paper were layered onto brown mirri.  I embossed a strip of amber mirri card with the Swiss Dots embossing folder.   The elements were attached to the card following the layout of the sketch.

Like how you have just rounded the top corners of the image. Makes me think of the old photo corners. Hugs Mrs A.
