A Sweet Stop Sketch

Here's my card for the SSS115 sketch. I used a tree stamp from A Muse for this, coloring with Copics and layering with chocolate chip cardstock and Basic Grey dp. I used an EK border punch for the leaves, adding 3 punched elements at the top. Sentiment is by MFP, and I added a few line dots with a chocolate marker to balance things a little bit.
I hope your July 4th was great! Mine was very quiet and I got a lot of stamping time in :)
Happy Monday everyone!

Aw. this card is such a 'real' card! (i know what I mean!!) love it! and the football game we have with an oval ball, we call Rugby!! they run with the ball as well as kick it, but don't have all that padding you guys wear!! Hope you had a lovely 4th July, we don't celebrate that either!
Have a great day!

Carol, this is sooooo pretty. I love A Muse because they're so sweet and simple. What a great job you did with your papers and leaves.
Worked in the yard on the 4th, then had a good meal and listened to fireworks until I went to sleep.
