Tah..Dah... Finished the Set!!

Nature's Sketchbook stamp
   I have finished with the last stamp in the Nature's Sketchbook set from Stampin Up.  It took me a little while 'cause it was hard to come up with a design that fit these beautiful stamps. I thought Cuttlebug's embossing tree folder seemed to be a perfect fit. I rubbed the raised parts with Tim Holtz's Vintage Photo ink.
The zig zag piece on the botton is also from Cuttlebug's collection of embossing folders.
   Martha Stewarts's branch punch in green and brown  added a little detail with the pine cones. The cones were made from McGill's pear punch that I just glued pears together upside down. Stampin Up's tag punch helped with the stamped sentiment from Nature's Sketchbook.
   There, I have finished this set that I had not used before. On to the next one.....
