A Winter Garden

Today's Christmas in July projects feature some Autumn Leaves holiday pattern. I love this paper as much now as I did when I bought it four l-o-n-g years ago. I combined it with Taylored Expressions Wings of Joy stamp set which I bought this past Christmas but had never used. I'm not sure why because it really is a dynamic set of stamps.  All images were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Papertrey Ink cardstock and then colored with Copic Markers.

The first card is my contribution for this week's Sketch For You to Try Challenge.
