This is the card I made for today's Color Challenge on Splitcoast to use Going Gray, Really Rust, and Very Vanilla. I don't have any Going Gray, so I substituted some gray cs from DCWV. I stamped the tree on Very Vanilla with Chocolate Chip ink. I stamped the leaves with Really Rust and cut everything out. I adhered the leaves to the branches and adhered the finished tree to my square panel that I cut with Nestabilities. I popped the entire panel up on foam squares and placed that on the Very Vanilla panel that I put through the Swiss Dots CB folder. I stamped the sentiment and punched it out with a circle punch. I punched out a larger circle in Really Rust and used the Scalloped circle punch to punch out the gray. I used a 1/16" circle punch to punch little holes in the scallops and added brown brads to the corners. Then I mounted the whole thing onto the Really Rust base which measures 5x5. Hope you like it, and thanks for stopping by!

This is a great card, Kerri - but...how do you get that in an envelope and mail it?? LOL - I guess you can tie it or put it on a gift basket or something?

Yes, I thought about that! It would probably be hand delivered. You could always move the tree over and down a little so it fit better and you wouldn't have to bend up the branches!
