Forever Fern for CASology 388

 I saw the current challenge at CASology. It made me really want to dig out one of favourite of all time sets, Forever Fern because I've often used the 'hello' stamp from it. Plus, I just haven't used it for a while and was missing it. 😀

I enjoyed making this card, especially the challenge of keeping it clean and simple. I realise that over the years, I've got a bit more layered in my crafting, so it was good to pare things back again.

I started by stamping the gorgeous DistINKtive leaf stamp in Just Jade, which I then lightly coloured with Soft Sea Foam Stampin' Blends. I stamped the berries in Flirty Flamingo and fussy cut them out and place them over the leaves. I added in some Soft Sea Foam splatters as well.

The sentiment is stamped in Shaded Spruce, cut using one of the dies from Tasteful Labels and popped on dimensionals. Three Champagne rhinestones complete the deal.
