The limb and leaves are stamped on vanilla cardstock. Then I stamped the sentiment on vellum holding the vellum in place over the stamped image so I could line it up where I wanted it. The vellum gives this a really soft and neat look in real life.
I added the "Life" part of the sentiment (so it appears to be hanging on the tree limb) using my Cropadile to punch a little hole behind the tag. After I had everything as I wanted on the main panel, I added the scalloped edge, embossed the background and added the hemp around that layer. The final detail was adding some stamped leaves across the top and bottom.
The full sentiment reads: Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away. (Love that!)
