Sketch Saturday #47 & One Stop Crafts - Decorative cuts


I love this tree stamp from Penny Black, and I really enjoyed working with this sketch from Sketch Saturday. I masked the tree, but after looking at the image and background (Hero Arts)together, I don't think that I need to have bothered.

The trellis wasn't quite long enough for the card, but as it had to go behind the circle, I just snipped it and separated the two halves a little. The backing paper is Pink Petticoat and the die cuts and embossing are Cuttlebug, with a Nestie label for the sentiment, which reads 'in a friend you find your second self'.
