Masking and Sponging Lovely As A Tree

I just love this stamp set so much, I just hope it never retires. I have tried one of my favourite technique's - Sponging with some Masking and just love the result. I have  made two cards, the first one is a very basic style then I have stepped it up a bit with the second card by using some layers of torn cardstock, crochet trim, buttons and some twine.

I would like to enter this card into the 
"Just Keep On Creating" Blog Challenge!

My Second Card - stepping it up with adding some layers.

Products used in these cards:
Cardstock: Mossy Meadow, Always Artichoke, Whisper White
Stamp Sets: Lovely As A Tree, Feel Goods
Stamp Pads: Chocolate Chip,Mossy Meadow, Marina Mist, Always Artichoke 
Trim: Venetian Crochet, Linen Thread
Buttons: Designer Very Vintage
Glue Dots, Snail Permanent Adhesive
Daubers, Sponges
Bone Folder
Stampin Trimmer

Tip: For my template I just cut a piece of paper the same size as my white card front and randomly made a cut in a rectangular shape, then tore out carefully that centre of the piece of cardstock - this then became my template. Using sponges I sponged on 3 levels, my darkest color in the centre, blue at top for sky and a lighter color at the bottom then removed the template and stamped my images onto the card front.
