Lovely as a Tree for the Divas!

It's colour challenge day over on the Diva Blog! You should check it out...and maybe you'll do better than I did in incorporating all the colours into the card. I tried...I REALLY did!

Today's colours were:

  • Crumb Cake
  • Old Olive
  • Always Artichoke
  • Midnight Muse
  • Elegant Eggplant
I managed everything except the Elegant Eggplant. I just could NOT see where I could fit in. Maybe you have an idea you'd like to share with me? Check it out:

This card is a simpler version of one I have pinned to my SUO Christmas Pinterest board. Narelle Farrugia is the original designer.

To be honest, I wasn't TOO sure about the combination of Old Olive/Always Artichoke, but I like the way it turned out.

And yes, I fussy cut the Lovely as a Tree...TWICE! When I was going to add the trees to the image panel, they just seemed to be floating there, so I tore some paper, took out my sponges and added some crumb cake ink to the bottom of the panel which helped ground the trees.

What do you think?

STAMPS: Lovely as a Tree

  1. Christyne, you could have done another layer with Elegant Eggplant, but your card is beautiful the way it is. A lot of working cutting those trees.


Thanks for taking the time out of your busy day to leave me a comment. I read every one of them and appreciate the time you spend on my blog. Have a GREAT day!
