Penny Black and More - July challenge

This is a scheduled post, been taking a little bit of a card making and blogging break, but I made this card well in advance for the Penny Black and More July challenge. We're continuing with easy themes, anything goes this month, just be sure your focal point is stamped (not a digi) - from any company.
I masked the edges of the white card front using painter's tape, then tore some printer paper to create a hill mask. Pan pastels were sponged onto the background and after removing the mask I stamped the tree using versafine onyx ink. The words from a clear whimsy stamps set were randomly stamped onto the background before I added the sentiment. Embellished with a little prima flower and sticky pearl, removed the painter's tape, then adhered to a white card base. 
Sentiment and tree are from the Penny Black set Enjoy Life, words are from the clear Whimsy Stamp set Backgrounds and Borders.

Hope you come join us this month, we have some great prizes to give away as always :-) 
Have a great Sunday!
