Gotta Love Trees

Good morning everyone....I hope you are having a great Saturday!! Two of my grandkiddos stayed with me last night...they stayed up late last night so I will have a little peace and quiet for a while this morning...I'll be surprised if they get up before 10:00!!
Thursday's Ways to Use It Challenge on Splitcoast was to use trees. It took a couple of days to get this uploaded since Blogger has been wonkey for the last 2 days!! I stamped Rubbernecker's Flourish Tree with Old Olive on vanilla cardstock and added the aqua butterflies. The seam binding was looped around the Nestabilities Fleur De Lis Square and the bow, button, and twine finish it off.
Recipe:
Stamps: Rubbernecker Flourish Tree
Paper: Vanilla, Old Olive
Ink: Old Olive
Accessories: Seam Binding, Button, Twine, Nestabilities Fleur De Lis Square, Dotted Swiss Embossing Folder


I just had to make another tree card...this one using Bo Bunny dp, Nestabilities foliage die, Webster's Pages Bloomers, sentiment from Rubbernecker's Scruffs, Scraps, and Stains set, Martha Stewart Butterfly punch, pearls, sewing, twine, and lace....whew...that's a lotta stuff...LOL!!! Distressing on the image layer and the leaves was done with Ranger Vintage Photo and the tree was stamped with Baja Breeze.

Thanks for stopping by today...I will come see you later today when the Grands go home. Have a great Saturday!!!!

Love your beautiful frame with the ribbon woven thru it. Love the colors on this one too.

I also love the soft colors and the turquoise and pink on the second card. This one has some beautiful flowers on it. Great job on both cards.
