Trendy Trees

Oops…I don’t know what happened yesterday.  I completely forgot to post!  I slept in again (still catching up from the Retreat), did some orders…puttered around the house, did some grocery shopping…and BAM…the day was OVER!  Anyone have days like that?  lol!

This card was designed when Lisa and I worked on some challenges via cyberspace way back at the end of January!  I’d forgotten I hadn’t posted it here.  After I finished this card, I did tweak it a little bit…got rid of the tag, but it still works.  I’m sure we used a sketch, but I couldn’t find the information on whose it was!  Sorry!

I started with a base of Certainly Celery and cut some of the Delicate Dots Designer paper…only available to those who place a $50 order…it is one of the free Sale-A-bration products!  Don’t have yours?  Place your order HERE and click on Shop Now in the upper right corner!  The designer paper is cut almost on the diagonal and both sides were used.  I stamped the tree leaves several times with Certainly Celery on Whisper White…to make the tree look fuller and then added the trunk in Basic Gray.  I cut a strip of Certainly Celery with my Cutter Kit to get a curved line for the grass.  It was layered on Basic Gray, then added layers of Certainly Celery and So Saffron.  I used the Eyelet Border punch on the So Saffron.  Last, I added some Bashful Blue Faux Diamond Dust 1/4 circles along the left side and some Bashful Blue Taffeta ribbon with the tag, "Thinking of You".

I hope to get back into my posting routine!  I have lots of pictures to take during the daytime of the cards I made over the weekend.  Some are made with retired product, so I hope you don’t mind too much!

Have a great day!
