H{ippity} Hop

Welcome to H{ippity} Hop once again! The {ippity} blog has a full list of participants for you to check out.
I took my inspiration for this card from this one by Amy Rohl. I am really happy with how it turned out! I really wanted to add some stitching, but alas I have no way to do that, so I put some piercing around the tilted layer instead. I fussy-cut (love that term, lol!) several branches and glued them down only by the bottom of the stems so they come off the card a bit. I even sponged the edges of the card base, and that's not something you see from me hardly ever, so don't get used to seeing it here!
