Sentiment

A sweet sentiment is added to a small banner and tucked nicely into the stem and leaves of the berry sprig.

The arrangement of three floral clusters is the perfect thing to hep draw attention to both the humming bird and sentiment. The kraft card base does a lovely job of toning all of the bright pinks down a notch for a more subdued presentation.

Ptisberries1

Combining three clusters of berries in different colors is a genius idea and closely mimics how you might sees thing in nature. The added shading to the solid leaves by inking in two colors is effective and adds so much definition.
