Blogger's Challenge!

It is finally Friday! I have a rather simple card to share today because my week has been anything but simple...lol! Lisa gave the Blogger's Challenge group a terrific color combination to work with this week (Always Artichoke, Chocolate Chip, Sahara Sand, and Sage Shadow). These colors would be just perfect for a masculine card. I was hoping that my Stampin' Up order with the To The Nines Designer Paper would have been in for this challenge because it would have made things a little easier, but no such luck. I do have my new Thoughts and Prayers set though. I stamped the leaves and the sentiment with Always Artichoke. Then I used Chocolate Chip marker on the trunk and branches. The card base is also Chocolate Chip with a few pearl accents in each corner. My quilted panel is made from Sahara Sand with a little help from my Scor-Pal. I added a band of Sage Shadow and did a little bit of faux sewing on the top and bottom of the panel. The main image is stamped on a panel cut from the Top Note Die with a chocolate button and some ribbon to balance everything out.

For more inspiration with this wonderful color combination, please see what the other Ladies in our group have come up with here. Thanks so much for visiting today...Toodles! :D
