French Foliage Thanks

I saw this card technique posted on Stampin' Connection by Marian Garcia. I loved the simple effect of the masking and sponging. I changed the colors and added the tab at the top.

Mask off the top and bottom of the card leaving the width exposed that will be sponged. Sponge in graduated colors - dark, medium, light. I began by sponging the daffodil delight on the right and worked my way left, adding calypso coral to the middle and melon mambo to the far left side. Whie still masked, use espresso to stamp the leaves that will only be inside the masking. Remove the mask and stamp the rest of the leaves that overlap the masking in espresso; add the dots and and round paris stamp in melon mambo. Stamp sentiment and add word window punch to top with button and baker's twine. Cardstock is so saffron.
