I recently received this stamp set and I wanted to ink it up right away. 

This SU stamp set is really hard to find, I ended up finding it through an ISO (in search of) thread on Splitcoast stampers.  What a great stamp set this is, it's so versatile!  It makes me wonder why SU retires some of their great sets so quickly.

I made this card following one of Splitcost's weekly sketch challenges.  Here is the link to all of the Splitcost sketch challenges.  Sometimes I'll look through the past sketches for some new ideas.

I stamped the tree image and then the leafy/dots over the tree.  Next, I simply stamped the bird, birdhouse, and boots at the bottom of the tree branch.

My sentiment is from SU's Circle of Friendship and it's stamped then punched and layered using my circle punches.  In the center of the punched circle I added another punched circle with two pink butterflies.

I kept my embellishments on this card sort of simple.  I just added a small spiral silver clip and a scrap piece of pretty in pink ribbon.  I also added some paper piercing just along the bottom of my card.

Thanks for stopping by!

And I love it. I'm glad I have this set. I got it just before it retired. I almost didn't though. Glad you found one. Your card is beautiful. Those mini butterflies are great. Thanks.
