More catalogue inspiration

This is another card inspired by the Idea Book & Catalogue; this time it’s based on the Just Believe card on page 49.

I began by stamping the sprig on a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock (yes, I know it looks Whisper White but it was sunny outside!) and then applying some ink around the edges of the cardstock using the flat stamp from the Distressing Essentials kit. I pierced all the way around and then tore off the corner. This is layered onto a piece of Old Olive, also torn in the corner, and a piece of Early Espresso cardstock, which isn't.

There are more sprigs stamped on the card base, as well as one on the circle accent, which features something which could be a bee, could be a hoverfly – any entomologists out there to put me straight?
