AAA Guest Designer - Leaves will grow

Hello there. I'm thrilled and delighted to be guest designing with the awesome AAA card challenge today.

They have a fab theme this time which was a lovely challenge for me because I do like to use a few stamps normally, but I stuck with the one image of the new tree from Visible Image

I think this Tree Of Life stamp set is a new favourite of mine and the two sentiments I've used are positive too.

This card was made by blending a rainbow of distress ink onto a card blank (making sure I masked off the edges first!), stamping the tree, colouring the leaves and adding some stickles to them for a bit of bling. Then I die cut a circle into a panel of white card (and some fun foam for mounting the panel on), and stamped the sentiment. The panel was added over the card blank on top of the fun foam so that the tree appeared in the centre of the opening.

On the inside I stamped the leaves several times and coloured them with Zig clean colour real brushes before stamping the sentiment into place.

Stamps And Stencil Used:
