Nutmeg with a pear tree

Over at The Stampin' Dymonz Scrap Shack we have a little group that is trying to get ahead with the rush of making cards for the winter holiday season. This week I followed the sketch over at the My Time Made Easy blog.

A simple stamped image (from a friends stash so of unknown origin) onto bronzed cs. Nutmeg in a pear tree - had to be nutmeg kind of colours for me. the base is black cs onto which is layered glossy, leather look black and bronzed purpley brown and hand made mustard papers to co-ordinate with the basic grey spotted paper. More of that glossy black to layer with. The ribbon has a gold thread onto which is a small tag attached with 3 chain links and a small bronze leaf charm. The sentiment is already preprinted onto the ribbon that again has gold threaded edges.

I am entering this into the following challenges
My Time Made Easy - Their sketch
The Rubber Cafe - Christmas in July
Tuesday Throwdown - Something metallic
