Friendship Tree for SSSC31 & CC232

Stamps: Renaissance by Design
Paper: Very Vanilla, Close to Cocoa, Taken with Teal, Close to Cocoa DSP
Ink: Close to Cocoa, Taken with Teal
Accessories: Sponge, Nestabilities

I couldn't wait to ink up my new Renaissance by Design stamps. When I discovered this local company, it wasn't long before I found this stamp set and fell head over heals in love with the tree and sweet sentiments in Roots and Wings.

I really wanted to give Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch 31 a try and thought this was a great chance. I also used the Color Challenge from SCS's CC232, which was Taken With Teal, Very Vanilla and Close to Cocoa, which happens to be one of the DSP I own...too perfect!
A little sponging on the very vanilla layer, some simple layering on the others, a little glue & Dazzling Diamonds and I was happy with how it turned out. What do you think?
