Hi everyone - hope you're having a lovely Sunday!

I'm joining again in the fun over at the CAS(E) THIS SKETCH Blog.  The sketch for this week is really a lovely one and this is the card I've created:

Here's the sketch:
At first I was totally lost and did not have a clue what to do with the sketch!!  I started digging into my boxes of stamps to try and find something I could use.  When I came across the leaf stamp I put it aside as a possibility to use and then I remembered that I've got the perfect sentiment stamp to go with it.  Problem was - I needed a branch for my leaves!!  Not having any drawing capabilities there was no chance that I could draw a branch myself so back to my boxes of stamps I had to go.  I came across this stamp and knew that I had to work out a way to use it as this is the only stamp I have with a nice branch on it!
In the end I stamped it on some cardstock and enlarged it to 200% on a copier machine.  I adhered my copy to a piece of cardstock and fussy cut it and I had my branch!
The leaves I've colored with ordinary colored pencils and then coated it with 3D Crystal Lacquer for a nice shine. 
The leaf stamp is one by a local craft shop, Great Impressions and the branch and sentiment stamps are both by KaiserCraft.
In the end this card was super fun to make!
That's it for now, thanks for the visit and hope to see you again soon!  If you've got a minute or two, I would love you leave a comment!!
Kind regards
