Using Scraps #2

The Impression Obsession challenge is about to end, so need to post my final 2 cards made with the scraps from my First Card.  For the 3rd card I simple cut 3 thin strips from the smaller scrap of the IO Sketched Roses I embossed & colored with Zigs. 
I hunted through my green cardstocks & found one piece left of the color I needed--whew!  It's a beautiful light green textured cardstock that matches the Zig I used for coloring.  The IO sentiment from Anytime Sentiments was heat embossed with the SSS Antique Gold embossing powder--same as I used for the roses.  Finished off by rounding the top corners & adding green Nuvo drops.  The drops look like a darker shade of the same green in person--not yellowy like the photo.  I'm also entering SSS Wednesday.  I'll be back soon with the last card.  Thanks so much for stopping by.
