The Flowers & The Trees

ccee-flower-&-tree-wm

Good morning everyone and happy Monday!

My card today is for the challenge I do every Monday with my CCEE Stamper friends. This week Cindy Motherway our challenge host for August challenged us to create a card that had flowers and trees on it.

Originally I had planned on using something entirely different for my card but unfortunately the set I wanted to use has gone missing in transit so I had to go with plan B … just as well there is a plan b right hehe! So I ended up using this Season’s of Friendship set from SU that I just had to have but until now hadn’t used hehe … not sure why I haven’t used it cause I do love this set.

I stamped the tree onto my top note cut out using chocolate chip ink and then added the leaves using kiwi kiss ink. I then punched out the flowers and attached them to my card using jewel brads.

Don’t forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the CCEE Stampers creations this week. You will also find details on how you can play in this challenge.
