Funky Trees and Freebies!!!

Happy Thursday, Everyone! The sun is shining today and that always makes me happy! Just a quick post today, it sure has been a busy week. I made this card using stamps from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff. I just love the trees in her new set "Funky Forest". I printed this one out twice, making one tree larger than the other. I colored them with my Prisma Markers and cut them out. I embossed my rust colored card stock in a cuttlebug folder and then embossed a blue-green strip in an embossing border and added stickles to the flower centers. I cut an oval out of my last piece of this bo bunny paper (sniff...Cindi, we need to go get some more) and then glued everything together and tied a ribbon to finish. Quick and easy! Lindsay is giving away a fabulous freebie to go with her new stamp set. Click HERE to go to her blog for the freebie and to find the links to the other Design Team Members' blogs to see what everyone else has created this week. Here's a quick peek at the new set:

















I'm off to enjoy the sunshine and the beautiful fall trees with all their bright colors. See you soon!

That is just too funny that we picked the same image and gave them very similar treatments. Yours is so pretty. Love the color combination you picked. The embossing is perfect, too.

Tracey...I love the color combo you choose for this card. Great idea using the CB folder and border! I wish I had colorful trees to look at, but here in FL it is still in the mid 90's.
