Flourishes Challenge # 141

The Hostess for this weeks Flourishes challenge is Maki, and she is asking us to make a project using Trees / Leaves. Not to use flowers for our focal image. I like this challenge, I always seem to use a floral image, so this was fun for me. I used cardstock from Gina K and Paper Trey Ink. Design paper from Memory Box Co. from last years Tinsel stack.The image I used is from the Forest of Trees stamp set, I stamped it with Memento Bamboo Leaves ink and then applied MS glitter to it. I cut it out with the Spellbinders Grand Calibur using Labels 18, and then traced the die and hand cut it to make a layer for the image. I also used the new Spellbinders Edgeabilities Classic Bracket, and an flourish die from the Fleur de Lis Accents set and added some pearls from Queen & Co. PTI ribbon, a button from my stash that I tied some bakers twine to and attached to the bow. The sentiment is from the Warm Winter Wishes stamp set. Oh, and the branches are cut with a MS punch.Thank you for stopping to see my card, I hope you have a wonderful day.
