Told you there were forests growing...

hehehehe! Yesterday my back ordered set, Thoughts & Prayers arrived and I mounted it right away so I could ink it up during nap time. Mr. Brown was running a bit early yesterday, he must have known I was getting ready to stamp :) Isn't this tree GORGEOUS!!! I did not own a nice Sympathy set so this was a no brainer for me to add to my collection. But I also have plans to use this and the beautiful branch included in the set well beyond sympathy and thinking of you cards.

The sketch for this card comes from Mercy's weekly sketch challenge. Check out this weeks challenge HERE. I flipped it and used the ribbon for that little extra layer in the sketch. This next card was for this week's color challenge on SCS- More Mustard, Rose Red, and Kiwi Kiss or Old Olive. I love kiwi, but went with olive on this one because I wanted to ink up the image with my markers.

I also used the new texturz plates on the rose red layer. If you aren't having success with this product, try adding two whisper white cardstock shims (I just cut two pieces down to the same size as my silicone pad) to your sandwich. It made all the difference to me.

Hugs, Lisa

  1. These are both so pretty - I especially like the colors and the flower with the linen and ribbon added to the sentiment on the second. Nice job!
