a sheltering tree

Well, my son's wedding was beautiful! We went over there today and had left overs and watched them open their gifts. I will post some pictures sometime soon! I had time to make this card for 4 challenges.

Play Date Cafe #50-green, melon and white
Get Sketchy #59
Stamptacular Sunday #80-BFF-buttons, flowers and friends
Stamp Something-Something Punchy

I love these colors together. I thought about making a Christmas card but decided on using this stamp by Gel-a-tins. I embossed the tree with green and bronze embossing powder. The punch is Martha Stewart and the flowers are punches and I punched out the leaves and added buttons. Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I love the swirly tree and the bird on top is so cute.
