Timeless Tuesday 141

Are you having a great week so far?  I have been working a bit more than normal and have found it harder to have time to stamp.  I am not liking this at all.  I am wiped out by the time I get home and it seems to be getting darker earlier and earlier each day.
This week at Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Maki is challenging us to make a card using trees or leaves NO FLOWERS.  Use a tree/leave image(s)/element(s) for your card/project. Try not to use flowers as your focal point for the challenge.



I pulled out an older set called Forest of Trees.  I used my Spellbinders Lables 18 dies and stamped the image in Peeled Paint, and sponged inside with Tim Holtz Distress inks in Antique Linen and Tea Dye.  I also added a little glitter to the trees.  You can get a better idea on the close up.  




Other Supplies:
Cardstock: PTI Smokay Shadow, Kraft
Patterned Paper: My Minds Eye 
Seam Binding, Button, and machine stitching
