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. 

05-27-08 Challenge

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!

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!

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!
