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.

Stamps: Unity Stamp Company
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, SU! Poppy Parade, SU! Close to Cocoa Marker
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select and Dark Chocolate, SU! Garden Green, Daisy Bucket Designs DP
Embellies: Bella Dots
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/goo Gone, Spellbinder's Nestabilities, The Paper Studio Sticky Doos

I am also entering my card in the following challenges:

Pile It On: Patterned Paper

Thank you for stopping by; have a great week!

Love the tree and apples, just darling. This came out so cute, even though you had to go to plan B. I, also often can't find the things I'm searching for, lol! Need to get more organized!
