Memory Box Sugardrop with Papertrey


I was taken with how the front sheet of Memory Box's Sugardrop paper (from Beverly at Precious Scraps) looks like Papertrey's Out On a Limb branch, so the two had to meet up!
I trimmed down the Memory Box paper, sponged Distress Ink Walnut Stain and Antique Linen (From Beverly!) around the edges, then layered it on Papertrey's Ripe Avocado and Sweet Blush. Next is a brown and pink print from the Sugardrop line, also layered on Ripe Avocado and Sweet Blush.
The OOAL branch, leaves and flowers were stamped in Papertrey's Dark Chocolate, Spring Moss, and Palette's Pink Toile. Some Flower Soft Sweet Pea was added to the flowers, then it was edged with the same Distress Inks as the Memory Box paper. I layered the smaller piece only on Ripe Avocado since I didn't want the small layer to get too big. A lovely piece of May Arts ribbon in pink organdy with brown dots finishes off the card.
It's always good to have a critical eye when you post cards, isn't it? What could I have done better? I wish I could have gotten the branch to flow with the background limb better, and I think next time I will do some background stamping on the small layer, and leave off the Flower Soft!
