Sunday Stamps has a unique fall color scheme this week...Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie and Bermuda Bay. I wasn't quite sure how I was going to incorporate the Bermuda Bay but it ended up working quite well as the embossed panel behind the tree image. I embossed the panel with the Square Lattice EF and backed with some Pumpkin Pie. Since my uncle lives in Massachusetts I thought this tree would be a great image to use, not only because of October and New England fall colors, but because my uncle is strong and has been the roots that kept our family strong through the deaths of my grandparents and my father in the last few years.
For the sketch I used some burlap for the strip across the middle. It's the first time I've used the burlap since I ordered it and I rather like it! The panel with the tree on it is popped up with dimensionals and even though I *tried* not to do any sponging (my daughter says I'm addicted to sponging) I ended up using Chocolate Chip along the edges. It looked too plain to me without it!
The challenge at The Paper Players is to make a CAS masculine card....birthday card for my uncle fits the bill and I think this card is pretty CAS!
Thanks for stopping by!
