Fern Stem

 A clean and simple sympathy card today with new release Impression Obsession images.  I stamped  Fern Stem G9045 by artist Kalani Allred a few times with Versamark and clear embossed it.  A little sponging with Memento New Sprout and Bamboo Leaves over and around the edges of the ferns to make the ferns pop.  Our Thoughts C9007
was embossed with Versafine Vintage Sepia and embellished with some dark chocolate pearls. You have to love a card that is under 10 minutes!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic weekend!!
