Homegrown stamps for The Sweet Stop sketch challenge...

I created this Homegrown square card for The Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge (shown below). It's all Very Vanilla, Wild Wasabi, and Woodland Walk dsp, with some Early Espresso ink. I stamped the Homegrown saying twice, cutting out the Wild Wasabi version and popping it up with Stampin' Dimensionals. The little garlics were stamped in Early Espresso, cut out and popped up too.

You can see that I didn't opt for buttons, the scalloped edge or the three brads shown on the sketch. I like to use sketches to create cards I probably wouldn't otherwise stamp... and often feel that less is more.

Stamps: Homegrown;
Ink: Wild Wasabi, Early Espresso pads;
Paper: Very Vanilla, Wild Wasabi, Woodland Walk dsp;
Accessories: Framed Tulips embossing folder, 5/8" Very Vanilla satin ribbon
