Running late with Lovely as A Tree


Must be just minutes to go before CAS - colours and sketches closes.  So if you dont mind I'll update this later.

Phew think I made it!

The colours were Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie and Chocolate Chip and here's the sketch -


I needed to make a birthday card for my father so these colours really suited.  Quite masculine I thought.  For the squares I've made a patterned background using the little pine cone from Lovely as a Tree.  The background mat is from the Brights paper stack and the base is Chocolate Chip.  My sentiment is from the retired Happiest Birthday Wishes and is stamped in Cherry Cobbler.  I used my square punch to make a ribbon tag and added a button from the neutrals set to one end.  Don't know what my Dad will make of the button but I think it looks quite nice. 

So a nice change from all the christmas projects.  We have proper snow now.  Hope it's ok where you are. x

Aileen,

I just love how you stamped your own background paper and the way you have blended the colours is perfect. I think the button looks great and I am sure your Dad will love it.
Thanks for joining us at CAS-colours and sketches and we hope to see you next week!
