I had the sweet daisies and beautiful inked background from Ardyth's card for Muse #124 in my head when I saw the sketch for CAS(E) This Sketch! #132. In the back of my mind I knew I'd seen a tree sketch somewhere recently and finally tracked it back to the Happy Little Stampers Sketch Challenge for July.
I have a huge love for tree dies and recently acquired the Memory Box Small Alder Tree. The card front was masked off to provide a tall & thin inked panel that would just fit the die cut and stamped sentiment. Shabby Shutters and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks provide a more muted background color than what Ardyth gave us in her happy Muse card.
I'm pretty sure this is my first time linked up to a Happy Little Stampers Challenge, but know it will not be the last.
Thanks for stopping by,
