Christmas in August!

Hi there!  Today's card features the newest release from The Stamps Of Life, Trees2build set.  I decided to make a Christmas card with it.  I call this my Charlie Brown tree!  I stamped the big tree branch in brown ink and then used the various sized leaves and stamped them vertically to look like ornaments.  I added some details with my Sakura Stardust gellyroll pen.  I did some sponging and distressing and added some jute twine to give this card a primitive look.  I really like how it turned out!  You can see this wonderful set below!
