An Inspired Thanks

I made this card for the Inspiration Challenge over on Split Coast last week.   I was inspired by this wonderful apple tree dish cloth sponge on the Inspiration web site - Harabu House.

 I immediately thought of the Arboscello Tree die by Memory Box and thought I could use some red Stickles on the leaves - and when I tried it, it looked just the way I hoped it would!

I embossed the white panel with Forest Branches embossing folder. I adhered the tree to the panel by applying glue just to the trunk up to the top to leave the branches loose on the card. (and miracle of miracles -  I didn't smudge the Stickles with my fingers while taking the picture of this card!)

My sentiment is from the Rescue Remedies Additions Set by Waltzingmouse. 


Oh-   and I wanted to let you know - I've been invited by PouchMart to do some postings of my bag creations on their new blog.  Pouchmart is a web store that sells all kinds of bags - that I use often for my crafts -  and my first posting came up over the weekend.

I'd love if you would check it out here and maybe leave a comment?!!
Thanks for coming by today!

This turned out perfectly! Love your take on the photo - I like it tons more actually. Your card is so clean looking with so much contrast and that bit of red just pops off the page. PERFECT!
