Last week I made this Lovely As A Tree card in response to a Color Challenge on Splitcoaststampers. Barbara aka bejoyce was the host for the Color Challenge, CC577 – Pink Pool in the Meadow! Barbara picked the wonderful colors of Pink Pirouette, Pool Party, and Mossy Meadow, and she gave us a “dessert” option of having one or more animals on the card.
(UPDATE: This card was selected as a Favorite of the Week on Splitcoaststampers for the week ending April 10!)
These colors go so well together and I enjoyed participating in the challenge. Remember Barbara’s challenge included dessert (i.e., extra points) if animals were included on the card? Well look closely and you’ll see five squirrels enjoying themselves under the “Lovely As A Tree”. I decided to offset my image to provide some room on the left side of the card for a ribbon and to use color blocking.
This card was selected as a Splitcoaststampers Favorite! It’s a favorite of mine as well!
I hope you enjoy the card and thanks for stopping by!!!
