SIP177 Lonely Tree

Happy Wednesday, peeps!  Cassidy has off today, so I am not sure what we'll be's supposed to get cold, cold, cold, so it will probably be an indoor activity!  Sadly, I needed another sympathy card this week; I had been toying with an idea for a card for a while and when I saw the Stamp Ink Paper challenge, I thought I could make it work:

The colors I used were Chocolate Chip (I had a piece on my desk already), Merry Merlot and Gray Granite, and here's my very CAS little creation:

I know it looks a wee bit Christmasy with that starry background but hopefully the recipient will find comfort with it nonetheless.  I used a tree die from In The Woods, backing my cardstock with a piece of Adhesive Sheet first; the hill is diecut with another die from the same set, and the heart was punched with an older SU punch:

The starry paper in Gray Granite is from the Twinkle Twinkle DSP series; I thought it looked nice for a quiet solemn sky!  Thanks for popping in today...if you have time to stop in tomorrow, there is a new Inspired By challenge!!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

This is the scary part of karate...Cassidy got her sparring gear!!  Yikes!  At least she'll be able to defend herself in any situation!

You are so smart to use the self-adhesive...I always remember after I have cut it out. Your choice of DSP is perfect. Cassidy...well, that goes without saying :-) Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. I am thankful for you and the beautiful cards you share with your followers.

Hi LeAnne, this is a great card for the colour challenge this week. I like how you balanced the colours in this design. Perfect for a Sympathy card. Thanks so much for joining us this week at Stamp Ink Paper. Carolyn xx
