Christmas Tree - AHSC 341

Hello! Today I bring you my project for the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. Each week we bring you a new sketch to inspire and help get those creative juices going! 

Here is what I came up with. I did alter the sketch a bit as the base of my tree was to wide for me to add a sentiment and well, the sentiment is in the tree so I added a bit of twine to the bottom of the card for the visual element of the sentiment. 





Products used:

Paper:
- City Sidewalks (retired)
- Willow and White Daisy card stock

Ink:
- Willow and Espresso

Stamp:
- B1693E Christmas Words Tree
