With Thanks

I made a card for the Clean and Simple challenge over at SplitCoast Stampers combining some new and old sets.  I always feel badly when stamps I love are retired, because, even if I really like them, I know they won't be the first ones I grab.  Well, for this challenge I knew just the set I wanted to pull out... an old Flourishes set with gorgeous silhouette stamps and the most beautiful sentiments!  

I first sponged in my hillside, using a ripped piece of paper as a mask inside an oval I had cut out with a Spellbinders die. I added the skeleton trees from Gina K's set Little Branches in GKD Charcoal Brown ink(stamped off once), then the pine tree from the newest Stamp TV Kit in Fresh Asparagus. Then I sponged in a little Sweet Corn as sky. I stamped the deer from the Flourishes set in Dark Chocolate and trimmed him out, then attached him with 3d foam and added a sentiment from the same set in Charcoal Brown.  I don't remember for sure, but I think the Flourishes set was called Celebrate the Wonder.

Thanks for stopping by today!  I always love to hear from you!
