When I spotted the As You See It sketch #137, I knew it would be a great sketch to put ink to the Vertical Greetings stamp set. For colours, I spotted the Create with Connie and Mary challenge #412 and thought the colours would work well with the topiary.
I made two versions of the concept: one has dry embossed cardstock and the second one has stamping on the strips (using images from the Sweet Stack stamp set). I used a piece of Watermelon Wonder Satin Ribbon (retired) leftover from a gift I received on one card, and Pool Party Glimmer Ribbon (sadly retired) on the second card.
I used Thick Whisper White cardstock for the card base.
