Lovely as a Tree Meets CAS


I have not had much stamping time this weekend, but I did squeeze in a fun mini "class" on watercoloring with my friend Lorraine and her mom Anna.  So when I saw today's Clean & Simple Challenge #39 on SCS, I knew I could incorporate one of my samples into the sketch:


I already had a Sahara Sand base cut;  I added a panel from BG's Ambrosia.  I quickly stamped a little leaf and watercolored it, popped it with a little circle punch, then cut out my tree with a Nestie.  I originally wanted to tie the leaf onto the ribbon (see the little hole?) but couldn't make it look right, so I just tucked it under the ribbon with a dimensional.  I just happen to need a get-well card for a dear friend from church--during the service yesterday, he fell ill and passed out....much to the surprise and dismay of everyone!!  He is fine, but stayed in the hospital overnight and hopefully will be home in a day or so.  So I thought this would be a great card for him!   And I doubt he'll even notice that little hole!   Thanks for visiting today!

Great card. I thought the little hole on the leaf had floss or something tying it on the ribbon. So if I was fooled, perhaps he will be too :)
