Nature Friend Card

Another Card using the new Nature Walk stamp set and Botanical Gazette DS paper from the Occasions Mini Catalog coming soon! And again an easy card because this paper looks so aged by itself, I just sponged around the edges with Early Espresso ink on the layers and then added a small amount of So Saffron ink to the edge of the embossed frame.
The card base is Cream Confetti CS, The frame embossed with Framed Tulip Folder using Shimmery White CS. The 'honeycomb' DS paper is stamped with the birdhouse & bee in Espresso ink. The eggs were stamped with Crumb Cake ink. The flower was inked using Old Olive and Cherry markers and stamped and then stamped again twice without re-inking to create a shadow.
I used the Pinking Hearts Border punch on another Cherry colored strip from the same wonderful DS paper and then placed it under a piece of Crumb Cake Seam binding along with a Vanilla Taffeta bow and a Antique Brad over the center. The tag is just a scrap of the DS paper stamped with 'Friend' from You're a Gem set, cut out and sponged around the edge! Very quick card!
