Sketch Challenge 217


For the weekly SCS sketch challenge posted each Wednesday. You can click here for the full details on SC217. I decided to flip the sketch in order to fit my three Trendy Trees in a row. Can't you just picture these trendy trees as you're driving down the boulevard? That's actually funny to me because I live outside a rural town, in the country with my brother's dairy farm just a 1/4 mile down the road, so "boulevards" are few and far between my stompin' ground!

Enough about me and my life, onto the card! I just got Trendy Trees from SU! and it was one of those sets that I hoped I liked once I got it in my hot little hands...love it! The stamp-a-ma-jig is a must have when using this set...don't try lining up those branches and trunks using the eyeball method, just dig out your SAMJ and get down to business! Simple stamping here but I love the results of the black trunks and Kiwi tops paired with one of my favorite designer papers--Crate Paper 5th Ave. Collection. Two Corduroy Kiwi Kiss buttons are the only embellishments, but who needs more than 2 Corduroy Kiwi Kiss buttons, eh?! The sentiment was stamped on a scrap, trimmed to fit and adhered just below the horizontal panel...nothin' to it!

Thanks for stopping by today!

WOW~this card is fabulous!!! I live on a farm as well and grew up on a dariy farm. I wouldn't trade it for all of the gold.

It's a good life!

Acck, LOVE this! Tell me, how many packs of that line of Crate paper did you buy?? I love it too but only bought a few sheets; I have to tell you though, that I thought of you recently when I found a new stack by DCWV called La Creme; it's all balck and cream and many are flocked; I think you'd like it! Here's a card I made with it if you want a peek!
