Sappy

Last night I was in need of a little Shopping Therapy, so I splurged and bought the brand-new Tree Carving digi collection from Little Musings. I love how it comes ready-to-color as well as pre-colored. Handy! I used the letters as its own image for the backing paper. Just for the sheer thrill of it, I used the "braid" texturing plate on the backing papers.

I'm also entering this card into the Let's see some Love challenge at Spoonfull of Sugar Challenges, which I haven't participated in some time (although I always enjoy looking at their DT projects!).
