Trendy Trees... and matching wheel!

Hi everyone!! How was your Wednesday? The weather is awesome in Minnesota... we may hit the high 70's tomorrow!! :)

This card I'm sharing is another one from Julie's Stamp Class this past Monday night. (The only time I use this CUTE Trendy Trees set is at class, even though I own it!) I'm sure you know what I'm talking about... LOL! I added to the card using my CuttleBug Swiss Dots embossing folder, used my Funky Forest wheel, and my first time also using Certainly Celery poly-twill ribbon!!

Thanks SO Much is clear embossed over Craft Chocolate Chip. I just LOVE the pink brad on the tree, looks like a cherry blossom!!

Hope you enjoy!! I plan to get back into challenges again. Sure miss them... thanks for the VISIT and kind comments ladies (gents too!)

SMILES... Michelle :)

This is gorgeous Michelle - I'm a bit of a fan of pink and green together, and then there's one of my favourite embossing folders too - no wonder I love this!!! So glad to see this wheel being used - am trying to decide if I should get it!! We get the Trendy Trees set at Convention in 2 weeks - yay - can't wait!!!

All the best and enjoy your nice weather.

Hugs and xXx

DANG, this is cute! I have the set, DON'T have the wheel, but after seeing this, I may just have to get it. Very, very cute! I just love how you put all the elements together!

Thanks for the inspiration!

Oh, so pretty, Michelle! Those colors are so soft and springy. I love that stamp set too. Now I wish I'd gotten the wheel. hmmm...

I like that you watermarked the pink panel... nice touch. And, I agree, that brad in the tree is super cute.

So glad you're enjoying good weather. I love weather in the 70's! We have that today, and I couldn't resist opening my car window and the sun roof and riding along with the cool air blowing in and the bright blue skies shining above. If only it would stay this way!

Big hugs and smiles,
Lisa

I like how this combines the wheel with the set. The stamping on the pink panel is subtle but adds a great detail. Love the one pink brad and the pierced circle.

What a pretty card. I have the wheel but not the stamp set. I may have to remedy that!

Oh, this is so pretty! I love how soft it looks! This is one of my favorite color combos! I have been debating on getting this set but I think you have convinced me now that I have to have it! I love the piercing on the circle and along the border! SU needs to bring these scissors back, what a gorgeous border! Another beautiful card!

Deb Rymer said...

Love this card! Your focal image is great - and especially love the line of pale green trees along the bottom. One of my favorites with this set!

This card is just beautiful. I always love the Cuddlebug dotted swiss design on cards; I love your colors also.

It has stopped raining here already and we have sunshine. Should be coming to you shortly!
