Lovely as a Tree

It's a Stampin Up card today.  I was meant to be helping a friend out with a market stall today to showcase some Stampin Up ideas.  However, over the past few weeks I just have not been drawn to my craft desk.  So as I was short on cards and she was coming down with a cold we have postponed the event.  I did have fun yesterday creating this card with the Stampin Up - Lovely as a Tree set.  

When doing this card I was also reminded why I do enjoy Stampin Up.  The fact that I can use one stamp set and one colour range of cardstock and know that it is all going to work together.  The base card is More Mustard, then Riding Hood Red, finished with Always Artichoke.  I used a clear Versamark ink pad to add the variety of leaves to each layer.  Ruffed up the edges of each layer of cardstock with the edge of my scissors.  Finished with a piece of kitchen twine.

Now it is the end of another week.  I will be putting on my taxi driving hat for our daughter part of the weekend.  Visit my friends place to help celebrate the fact that there is now another teenager in this world, her 13 yo daughter.  In between, gardening, crafting and best bit ....... nothing. :-)
Have a good one everyone.
