Trendy Trees on my kitchen counter...

Hi - I love this card....love it!  The colors, the trees, the simple layout...But for the love of a sandwich, I could not get a good picture of it!  Somehow the colors were all goofy.  Too yellow, too orange, too dark.  Ack!  So I finally gave up at 1:30am and went to sleep.  (I know, slacker!)   Tried again this afternoon and same deal.  That's when I decided to forget the light box for now and take the picture on the kitchen counter! 

newly imported 803



At least the card is the right colors now!  So Saffron, Old Olive, Soft Suede and white.  The striped DSP piece is from the Tall Tales pack.  The ribbon is So Saffron as are the buttons with a little linen thread tied through the holes.  I stamped the trees from the Trendy Trees set in Old Olive and Soft Suede, using the Stamp-a-ma-jig to align the trunks.  They are all cut out and put on with dimensionals and glue dots.  The sentiment is in Soft Suede.  I used the distressing tool from the Cutter Kit to rough up the edges of the Old Olive piece until the edges started to split and then used my fingers to roll back the top layer of the cardstock.  The little scalloped edge was pierced and added underneath.  If you look closely you can see the fluffy leaves stamped in So Saffron just under the top left corner of the Old Olive piece - for a little something unexpected.  I really {heart} this card. :0) Hope you like it too!  Thanks for stopping by -
