Market Fresh for Freshly Made Sketches #196.....

Hello everyone: I have a card for you today made with a new stamp set from SU! It's called Market Fresh , I really like it, although when I saw it for the first time, I got the impression that the images were to big but then, I started seeing beautiful cards made with it and that convinced me to get it so I made this card with it for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week.

This was a quick card, I chose the Argyle embossing folder from SU (retired) because the design in it kind of resembles this yummy bunch of grapes. Here is a close up of it, I hope you can see the shimmer from my Wink of Stella on the grapes.
The pretty button and brad are retired SU details. The ribbon is from a bottomless container of ribbon that I can't seem to make a dent in, perhaps I should start using it a bit more or perhaps I should not be buying any more spools, LOL!!
I hope you like this simple, no fuss card so please let me know in your comments, I appreciate each word you write.
Thank you for visiting.

Maria.

Paper: Canson water color paper, Wisteria Wonder, Wild Wasabi.
Inks: Stazon Jet Black, SU markers in Garden Green and Elegant Eggplant, So Saffron, Soft Suede, Wink of Stella.
Tools: SU Argyle embossing folder (retired)
