Thinking of You for 2S4Y

When I made this card, I had one very special friend in mind.....she has had a rough loss recently and so I made something to let her to know that I am thinking of her.  I used Kazan's Sketch 56 from 2 Sketches 4 You for this card.

        Cardstock, stamps, punches, ribbon: Stampin' Up!
        Ink: Stampin' Up! and Ranger Distress
        Die-cuts: Cricut Expression with Serenade cartridge
        Embossing: Sizzix by Tim Holtz
        Brad: unknown

I distressed the cardstock on the trunk of the tree/vine to give it some texture and dimension by using a craft knife and cutting away at the top layer.  I then added some inks and my marker to give a little bit more.  I gave a little bit of texture to the leaves by using an impressing stylus down the center of each leaf.

Thanks for stopping by!!
