Lovely as a Tree Thinking of You

Here's my card for CASual Fridays challenge which has joined with Clean and Simple Stamping.  Two challenges in one! This is the sketch we were given to follow - 


For my card I've gone with a Crumb Cake card base and teamed it with some Perfect Plum and attached a Whisper White panel.  The tree is from Lovely as a Tree and is stamped in Elegant Eggplant.  I sponged some Perfect Plum and Elegant Eggplant across the bottom and carried it over the card base.  The sentiment "Thinking of You" is from another stamp set Silhouette Sentiments.  I punched it out with the Word Window Punch then re inserted one end back into the punch to make it shorter.  This is layered onto Perfect Plum punched out with the Modern Label Extra-Large Punch

I had a lovely fun day with some close friends who are truly bitten by the crafting bug.  We are all learning together and passing on skills to each other whilst having a laugh.  It also kept me occupied so I was not thinking of my (or rather worrying about) my eldest who started secondary school today!
