Stamp TV's Inspiration Challenge from Gina


Challenge from Gina this week is to use this photo as inspiration...that's it!!!

beautiful picture...and I wanted to keep as close to it as I could....
here's my card....

and the inside...


For the background mat, I used Basic Grey's Bittersweet paper...sponged it with various inks, stamped it with leaf and tree stamp, ran it through CB Branches folder, sponged it again with same various inks and then sanded!
Sentiment stamped and mounted with nestie...AND this time I did the inside of the card as well....

what do you think?  It's one of those that's prettier IRL...
Wanted it to be a simple card, but the background did take some time....

thanks for poppin in....
Have a great weekend!
