Topiary tree...
It's magical...


Happy Friday everyone!  I am really glad it is Friday, it has been a long week!  Today I am using the SU! stamp set of sheltering tree.  I think this is really a gorgeous set and one that is so versatile.  Surprisingly this is the first time I am using the stamps.  I wanted to create a serene get well card that could be used for either gender.

I started off with soft sky and early espresso cardstock.  Unfortunately, this card did not photo as well as it shows in real life.  Argh!  I took pictures from every angle and still couldn’t get a photo! 6 (559x640)

I stamped the tree trunk in early espresso and the leaves in versamark that I white embossed.  The sentiment is from PTI and white embossed as well.  I used my SSS sketchy banner to spotlight the sentiment. 7 (640x393)

I am entering this card in the Card Concept challenge which was to make a get well card.  I would consider this a clean and layered card.  One that I really like!

I am excited to report that THIS card was named the winner in this week’s The Friday Mashup challenge!  I had fun coming up with this card and I am glad they enjoyed it too!  Thank you ladies – you have a fun challenge blog to play along with!

Thanks for stopping by today!  I may be popping in over the weekend with a couple of posts – depending on what I can get done!  Otherwise I will be back on Monday!  By then we will know if March came in like a lion or a lamb!

Supplies:  CS:  SU! soft sky and early espresso.  Stamps:  SU! sheltering tree.  PTI inside and out well wishes.  Dies:  PTI linen impression plate.  SSS sketchy banner.  Other:  white embossing powder, rhinestone.
