Punchy willows

If you are like me, you see great ideas all over different blogs and magazines and have a hard time remembering where you saw different ideas that stuck in your head. That is the case with this idea. I don't remember where I saw it, but some clever person came up with it. Thanks! I guess these are cattails? I'm not very UP on my horticulture so I'm not sure of the exact name of these faux plants. I stamped the grass with Old Olive and then punched out the word window using Close to cocoa cardstock. To give them some dimension I sponged chocolate chip in on the edges. I wrapped some chocolate wide grosgrain around the front of the card, over lapping it and leaving a knotched end showing. The flower is from the new flower assortment brads from Stampin' Up! These puppies are big and beautiful! I stamped the saying from Best yet set in chocolate chip on white, sponged the edges and popped onto a square of close to cocoa sponged with the chocolate ship. The base of my card is olive. I think this card was leaning towards the masculine side til I added that flower brad...now I'm not sure. Oh well, I like it!
