MTSC89 From a Withered Tree

I can't believe the month of August is already gone....  :-(  It makes me so sad!!!!  It's my last week as Mercy's Guest Muse for her Tuesday sketch challenge and all I can say is I have enjoyed this month so much stamping with such an amazing group of ladies!!!!!  Mercy - you know I love your sketches!!!! Thanks for allowing me the opportunity to create for you.  I've always found you and your Muses to be such an inspiration!!!

For my card, I've flipped the sketch on it's side so that I could use the blossom from the There She Goes set called "The Journey" illustrated by Chris Dark.  I'm so loving this set (can you believe it's the first time I've used it).  I've stamped both the image and sentiment in Versafine Vintage Sepia - I love the look of it because it's not so stark as black.  I've watercolored the image with my Tombow Markers and around the edge to highlight it I used one of my blue Tombow Markers.  Each layer of DP has been dry embossed using a variety of Cuttlebug embossing folders and each layer as well as the Chocolate Chip layers have been sponged with Close to Cocoa.  Hope you like it!!!

Check out what Mercy and her Muses have created today.
