I was playing with the Stampscapes leafy branch and my 'Big n Juicy' dye ink pad. After stamping a few branches off the page here and there for fun I turned on my little light bulb in my head! I've got loads of different colours of stickles so brought them out and accented the different coloured areas of the branch with the same hue of stickles.
I can't remember right now who produced the birthday sentiments package I bought but will add that once I know. This quote is by Oprah Winfrey and I thought it was so lovely that all it needed was the branches for an accent.
The blue background paper is unknown and from my stash. The card is 5 X 7 so when using the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots I had to do it in sections. When you do that, the smooth border of the embossing folder smooths out some of the dots. That is easily fixed by laying the embossed paper on a foam pad and gently pushing the dots back out with the end of a stylus.
The card was finished off with three square purple brads.
Here are two photos taken at an angle so you can hopefully see the stickles.
Thanks for looking! Thank goodness tomorrow is Friday!!
