Gum leaves and blossoms

Hi everyone, I hope you are having a great week! I'm looking forward to a crafty weekend as things have been a bit busy lately. Here's hoping anyway lol!

I was asked for an Australian themed birthday card and thought of this Kaszazz stamp I've had for a while. It's a similar design to previous cards I've made but I tried to get a better green for the leaves this time, and left off the flower soft on the blossoms. I've fussy cut and separated the leaves and blossoms to arrange on this twig, cut from a snippet of brown card.

One snippet is all you need to visit the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

These flowers and leaves look very pretty against the woodgrain background Cathy, and the black base card suits it perfectly. x
