Quickie Challenge Post

One more post today before I am off to run my errands.  My house smells like rhubarb pie--mmmmm!  This is for today's Color Challenge---Chocolate Chip, Sage Shadow & Very Vanilla.  What a wonderful combination!  I wanted to do a simple card and use a stamp that I hadn't used in a long time.  I think "A Tree For All Seasons" was one of the first sets I ever bought!!  It is still a favorite, I just don't use it enough.

Image is stamped in Timber Brown Stazon and watercolored with an aquapainter.  The background is the fern from "A Touch of Nature".  HPH is Antique Brass on Twill Ribbon; the "wish" is from Everyday Flexible Phrases.  The green butterfly (which I am sure is not natural in real life!) has a tiny bit of glitter from my Jelly Roll pen.  And Denise (peanutbee) is really rubbing off on me because I  stamped the tree again on my inside piece.  This card is 3.5 x 5" and will fit in a notecard envelope.  TFL!

  2. Holy smokes, lady, this is awesome. Perfect stamp choice to go with these colors, and I love it paired with the twill tape and hardware. Rockin' card!

    ...and I share a b-day with your cousin too. What do you mean, you don't send Memorial Day cards??!! {wink...I don't either}

  3. P.S. *LOVE, LOVE, LOVE* the inside stamping. Looks great!

  4. Gorgeous LeAnne! I love these colors! I've had this stamp set for at least 6 mo and haven't used it yet!

  5. What a cute card. I love the colors. Great job. I might get into my stamp room and do your color challenge tonight

  6. I saw your card over on SCS on I did a dead stop when I saw this card. I knew it was yours!!!! I love seeing cards made using this set. I own it too and don't think ink ever touched it. (shame on me!) Thanks for inspiring me to pull it out and use it on a card. (maybe today's sketch challenge...stay tuned!) Love your layout and colors with the twill tape added! Nice job, my friend!

    Enjoy the "much cooler" weather today!
