🌳 Build A Tree πŸŒ³

Hello everyone πŸ™‚ My card for today is a little different. I came across this super lush stamp set from docrafts called β€˜Build A Tree’ and I just had to have a play with it. I wanted to do some watercolour flowers for my Mother’s Day cards this year but I didn’t have any stamp sets so my wonderful husband took me shopping and I found this. As you know my style of card usually contains an image of a person or critter so this was a little outside my comfort zone, but never the less it was great fun to experiment and hopefully I can have another try when I have some more stamp sets to play with. I hope you like it x
