Olive and Oak Thanks.....

Hello everyone: When I saw this image over at the Power Poppy on line store, I immediately loved it but, it was a digi and, well.....I really like it better on a set so I patiently waited for Marcella to create a Photopolymer set with it and, when my patience was finally rewarded, I pounced on this gorgeous set called Olive and Oak.  As you can see, it needs nothing to look amazing, so I kept the design of my card simple, not clean mind you, just simple. I was tempted to add something like sequences or a bow but I decided to just let this lovely image speak for itself, all I added is a piece of ribbon that I bought the other day for $1.00 that happened to have the perfect colors for this card, hope you like it.

I stamped the image onto Strathmore Multi Media water color paper with Stazon black ink and colored it with SU markers, some ink refills and the aqua painter. I added some Baked Brown Sugar splatters with the retired SU set called "Gorgeous Grunge", I'm telling you, this set is the best to add really awesome details to your cards, the sentiment is from the same set.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

The sentiment and the acorn image are from the set, the little frame from a retired Flourishes set called "Country Charm Labels".
I would like to enter this card onto the following challenges.

Just discovered this post sitting in my email! Wow I'm glad to see Marcy made this oak in photopolymer! It's stunning and I love your splatter background! Can't believe you needed more ribbon!

Maria, this is gorgeous! I agree, I am more of a fan of regular stamps than digis, and it is fun that this stamp is available for you now as regular.

I like the simple design so that stamp takes center stage! Thanks for sharing with us over at Just for Fun! Hope to see you again!
