Truly Scrumptious Week 1

Well we're here and ready to go with our first challenge at Truly Scrumptious which is a fantastic sketch by Sharon - Yes we're easing you in gently ladies but we have some fun stuff coming up!

It's my birthday today too so what better way to start it all off!!!!

My card is made using Anna Griffin, Bazzill and Basic Grey papers and card stock . I inked my die cut scallop oval using Tim Holtz distress inks. I then stamped and masked the branches then stamped the sun using Versafine inks. Added some bronze gems to the branches.

The flowers and leaves were punched from various bits of vellum and card stock from my scrap drawer.

Made a little tag and stamped my Life is Sweet sentiment - I love that stamp!
