Stamp 2 Spend Tree Challenge

The Stamp 2 Spend Challenge this week was to use trees - a tree or a branch to commemorate Kelly losing 4 of her trees in a bad storm the other night.  Thank goodness none of them feel on her house or caused any real damage except she lost power for 2 days.  I've had this stamp set for some time and have never taken it out of the case, but it was just perfect for this challenge. 
I used SU Whisper White for the base; GP White to stamp the images.  I love the SU dp Afternoon Tea that I used here.  Actually I love most all pattern paper.  I'm seriously addicted.  The images are from a See D's stamp set called Asian.  The sentiment is stamped with SU Wild Wasabi and the image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black, my black of choice.  I thought it needed a little something in the corner, so I put a few brads over there.  I wanted to use some ribbon, but there wasn't really any room for it.  I popped the sentiment up on dimensionals over the main image.  The image was colored with Copics -- C00; C2, C4; E35, E37, W0, W00, W2, W4, YG0000, YG01, YG03, YG61, and YT63.

Thanks for stopping by.
