Now to the HOP!
Join us each day, Aug. 23 - 26, for some 
Prize for Commenting is
Big Trees stamp set

Here is my card for DAY 1!
For this card I took my green dotted background
paper and ran it through an embossing folder. I 
then took a black ink pad and rubbed it over the
raised portion of the embossing to enhance the design.
I took my white piece of cardstock and sponged
some black ink along the edges and stamped my
trees and sentiment. I colored the trees using
Copics and added Fun Stampers Journey Glaze
for some shiny dimension. Very simply done!
Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to join in on the
hop and consider following my blog!
Stamps used to make this card are:
"Birds & Trees"
(not sure what set I found the FALL sentiment
but MFP has many other great ones! lol)
