WCYC Wednesday

Good Morning Everyone!

Getting ready to take the little guy to pre-school and then I think I might just treat myself to a muffin or scone at Barnes and Nobles. I recently bought a book called "Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet." I think I might take that with me and just relax in one of those big cozy chairs for a little while. Before I set off, however, I want to share my card for "What Can You Create" Wednesday. I started with a Soft Suede base and then cut the two Not Quite Navy panels for the top and bottom. I used a small scallop edge punch from EK Success on each of them. Next I cut a piece of Old Olive and a piece of Certainly Celery and then ran them through my Cuttlebug before cutting them both in an "X" style and then assembled the pieces as shown. I cut another layer of Soft Suede for the piece of the middle and stamped it with the "Fine Lace" background stamp. (Still my fave!) The tree in the middle is from "Lovely as a Tree." I stamped it first with Suede ink on Kraft Paper and then used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp over it with the NQNavy ink. I added the buttons on the side and then the two small strips of Certainly Celery at the top and the bottom. The Sentiment on the bottom is from "Sweet Sentiments" and I used Olive ink to stamp it on Kraft paper. Finally I rounded the corners and the card was finished.
So, I have just enough time to visit a few blogs. Have a great day and thanks for visiting with me!

Oh my gosh I love these colors together! I never would have thought to pair Certainly Celery with Old Olive, but it looks great! Fabulous card! ~Jacqueline @ Scraps of Life

This layout really puts the focus on the nice tree image.
