Scrap RDV Guest Design--a Sketch

Happy Tuesday! (This is my 2nd post today). Please scroll down or click here for my City Crafter Challenge Guest Design post.
 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
It is my pleasure today to share a card with you over Scrap Rendez Vous I was asked to create a sketch and a card. That's really something new to me, but I love the challenge!
Here is my take of the sketch (all details here ). 

I created a little "hill" (see bottom of the card) with a strip of cut-out paper and TH Distress Inks (Scattered Straw, Tea Dye, Vintage Photo). Then I stamped the Delicate Leaf in "rocking" motion to get two shades of inks ( Tye Dye and Wild Honey). I added the ribbons, buttons and gems for final embellishments.
hello friend
