Take A Break!

Hello! Today's card uses the new release from The Stamps Of Life, Houses4us.  The tree trunk and foilage on the tree are separate stamps, so it makes it great for paper piecing, which is what I did! I used patterned paper from Crate Paper's Emma collection.  I popped the foilage with pop dots.  I framed the image with more of the same woodgrain patterned paper along with a strip across the bottom.  I used some green baker's twine from The Twinery to tie it all together!
I free hand cut a hammock out of dark brown cardstock and then used some ivory burlap string to make it look like it is tied to the tree trunks.
The sentiment is from TSOL set, coffee4two. 

Thanks for stopping by!
