Friendship is a sheltering tree....

I was feeling a little drained in the creative department. When that happens, I usually surf a bit to find a challenge lurking out there in the blogosphere! Well, I decided Taylor's was just the one to get me out of my funk.

Here's the sketch...

You'll have to take a trip to her blog and see her card. You can click HERE. She did the most darling Bella with bright, spunky colors. LOVE it!

Her card had a cupcake feel, but I decided to pick up a stamp set I just got to play. This set is so cool! You can build your own tree! It's from Impression Obsession. Isn't this neat?????

The card is really pretty simple. I just stamped the pieces of my tree using brown Vivid ink. The leaves were done with Leaf Green Adirondack ink. After inking up the little leaf, I stamped it twice - once with full ink and then the next a "second generation" to get that color contrast. Don't ya just love the little owl! He is too cute! I stamped him on the smallest circle in my Spellbinders Geometrics Circle set and then matted it on a 1" circle I just punched out. Layer up the paper, punch a ribbon hole, mat up your tree and call it good. I just love the saying... "Friendship is a sheltering tree.."

Off to work. Catch y'all later!
