I started by deciding which side of this gorgeous stamp set was I going to use. I decided on the branch portion itself.   Starting with the outline stamp, then moving to the matching stencil set.  I used my Detail Blending Brushes for each of the layers on the stencil.  Then I grabbed my snips and began fussy cutting it out. For my colors I used Tea Party and Tropical Forest Crisp Dye Inks along with Artist Markers Y204 and R101. 

The Fine Frames die set was used on Gold cardstock and looks Devine, as a pair.  I added a simple sentiment in Obsidian Black and my design is complete.  I didn't add any other embellishments because I thought the gold was the bit of wow every card needs.
