J'adore this Tree!

Hi everyone!   

Just a reminder to check out to see if you were the winner of the Waltzingmouse Stamp Set of choice from the Design Team Blog Waltz on Wednesday -   the announcement is on the Waltzingmouse Blog here.

I also have a card to share that I made for the Inspiration Challenge on Split Coast.   Steph had the scrumptious Superfine Bakery Site to tickle our creativity (and taste buds!)

I was inspired by this beautifully elegant Beach Cake.
And here's my rather Clean and Simple interpretation of it!
The wonderful coral on the cake made me think of this lovely Arboscello Tree Die from Memory Box.  First I stamped the sentiment from Compact Sentiments by WMS on the green panel.  Then I embossed the panel with Swiss Dots, wrapped the simple lace around the base and adhered the die cut tree to the card.  I used a glue pen and just glued the trunk up to the top - leaving the branches unglued so they lifted off the card a bit for a lovely 3D look.   Inside I stamped -  Bon Anniversaire - from the French Country set.  So I will use this as an anniversary card.

A little update on my cold -  I finally slept in my own bed last night with two pillows so I was practically sitting up -  but I slept from 10:30 pm to 4 am without waking up coughing!  So I think I'm on the road to recovery - slow as it may be!   Thank you SO much for all your supportive comments - I'm going to try and go to work tomorrow maybe just for half a day.

And don't forget to check out the Sunday Stampin' Sisterhood challenge!
