Creative Slump? Say No More!

Hello friends!
Are you feeling creative these days?
I must say that I am often create often, but there are days that I just can't get myself to create.
SO....I would take a tiny break and wait until the creative bug comes back 
I would take one of the dies Branch Frame (Penny Black) and start playing.
Metal Dies are interesting things to play with when it comes to card-making.

You make the die cut and then you have an instant piece to start. 
I took out my previously-made watercolor paper (with Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide).
thanks -001

I tilted the frame and use the diamond shape instead.
I then added my white-embossed and colored piece from Country Charisma Stamp and Die.

This card was created just before my bed time. It took me about 35 min from start to finish.
It provided me a sense of calmness and felt therapeutic.
The delicate branches truly make the card special thanks to their fine and intricate details.

I hope that you are inspired to create as crafting is good for the soul!
