Beautiful Day

It is absolutely beautiful in Cincinnati this weekend.  I was rushing around last weekend changing closets from shorts to long pants...and seeing who had outgrown their pants from last year.  No need to worry about it yesterday and today.  The boys have been running around outside in shorts and sandles.  Simply beautiful.  I could take this type of weather all year!

So...onto my card for today.  The current Embellish Challenge is to use felt along with the colors in the color swatch.  I decided to stamp the tree trunk in white on the brown felt and cut in out.  I also stamped the leaves on the white base and stamped it again, cut it out and used to dimensionals to pop up the leaves.  The layout for this card was inspired by the CASE Study Challenge.  Loved the layout of the card for this week's CASE Study Challenge.  It could be used for so many different card ideas!
Ingredients:  Stampin' Up Riding Hood Red  and Whisper White Paper;  PTI Through the Trees Stamps; PTI Baker's Twine; Range Distress Ink; SU Border Punch

You amaze me how you create such wonderful stuff, work and raise a family.
I really love this card and what you did with the sketch. I like how the twine "ties in"..(ha...didn't mean for that to be a pun.)

This is SO gorgeous! I LOVE how you incorporated the felt into the tree!! Then I was wondering where the yellow was. You combined those difficult colours extremely well!
