DIY & CAS

Today's 365 Cards challenge was to create your own flower out of paper. I combined it with this week's CAS challenge to use blue, green, and neutrals. I chose papers and a button from the Urban Prairie collection and added a ribbon and sentiment (stamped off once in Kiwi Kiss, it's almost an exact match to the green in the dp--love it when that happens).

Stamps: Trees, Birds, and Messages (Hero Arts)
Paper: PTI white, Urban Prairie dp (BasicGrey)
Ink: Kiwi Kiss
Accessories: ribbon (Michael's), button (BasicGrey), Nestabilities scalloped circles
