Choose Happy!

Greetings!  Just playing with a couple of new stamps from the Impression-Obsession Fall & Winter stamp release.  If you have missed the release, you can find all of the fall/winter stamps, and new summer dies on the IO site HERE.
Branch L20755
Sentiments 3219-L

I had so much fun with this card.  It has stamping, coloring, and Zentangle....all of which I love to do!  I really 'branched out' and tried something different with this stamp.

I stamped the Branch L20755 image into white card stock.  I drew some Zentangle patterns inside the leaves and branches with a fine Micron pen.  I added some extra circles around the image.  

I stamped the verse from the Sentiments 3219-L  set onto a scrap piece of card stock, and drew a couple of the same type of leaves, and added patterns inside that.

I colored all of the branch and the verse piece using Arteza Real Brush markers, then created a banner out of the scrap piece, added some black card stock along the bottom of it, and added it to the card with foam tape.  I mounted the whole shebang to a black A2 card front.

I hope you like my card, and that it has inspired you to 'think outside the box,' or branch! 

I am adding my card to these challenges today:
Allsorts Challenge - Clean and simple
Watercooler Challenges - Masculine anything goes
Thanks so much for visiting.   I appreciate your comments.
