Less is More goes Sketchy

This week's Less is More Challenge  is a sketch....

I had a hard time deciding what I wanted to do.  I tried several things and decided I was making it too hard.

My first instinct was to put texture on the bottom instead of a pattern.  So after a couple false starts, I went in that direction.

This is what I came up with....

I stamped 2 of the flower and cut both out.  On one, I cut out some of the petals and slightly rolled it with my bone folder and attached it to the other with a dimensional.

I used the Blossom Petals Punch to punch some leaves.

Card Recipe
