Love the Earth
Good (early) morning! It's time for another fun challenge from the ladies at Creative Card Crew; this fortnight our challenge is "trees" and our sponsor is Simon Says Stamp.
Have you ever known exactly what you wanted to make, but couldn't find the stamp? That's what happened to me with this one! I am in the midst of moving my stamp area into my new space (my very own room...just for me!) and it's a bit messy.... I never did find the stamp set I was looking for, but I did find a set from Unity instead. So, as Tim Gunn says, "make it work"! I switched gears...found some papers, a new layout, etc. The tree is colored with pencils and embellished with Bella Dots; I used a few diecuts and did a bit of layering.

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, SU! Poppy Parade, SU! Close to Cocoa Marker
