Sage flower pot card

Hi everyone!  Today's card uses one of the 3 new herb pot dies and this one is Sage.  For the sage sprigs, I die cut them in green and then cut the extra "blooms" in a lavender cardstock and adhered them on top.  I didn't realize that Sage blooms were lavender, but thanks to Google, I know now!
To decorate my flower pot, I hand cut out a flower from the pattern paper, and for some texture I stapled a piece of Faux Canvas ribbon.  This card ended up being one of my mix-y match-y cards.  I had a lot of fun with this one.
Here is what the die set looks like, it is a set of 6:
How cute, right!?!  It also comes in Lavender and Basil.  I used a couple other basic die shapes as my matting pieces, Rectangles LG and A2 Curve Matting Basics B (which has to be one of my favorites - I love the rounded corners!)

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.  Here is a close up of the die cut details.
