TESC 151

Good morning, Friends! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend and are ready for another great week! Seems like the weekend went way too fast for me! Time to get my priorities in line and start chipping away at each chore. Now Nick has woke up and is trying to tell us that he isn't feeling well. Hmmm... I know he's tired but is he really coming down with something? I really hope not. 

Today's card was inspired by a sketch from Taylored Expressions. This is an older sketch of hers but I liked it and thought I should give it a try. I pulled out a set that I haven't used in a while, Trendy Trees, and the card came together pretty easily. I ran the front of my card base through the Big Shot with the Stripes embossing folder. Then I took a piece of designer paper from the Just Add Cake designer paper pack and adhered it to a piece of Wild Wasabi. This panel is popped up onto the card. Then I ran a piece of Early Espresso card stock through the Big Shot with the Perfect Pennants die to cut the scallop circle. I punched a 2 1/2" circle of Whisper White and stamped the sentiment from Trendy Trees in Early Espresso. I adhered this to the scallop circle and added two brads. I popped this up onto the card. I cut a thin strip of Early Espresso card stock and adhered it to the circle. Then I stamped the tree on a scrap of Whisper White (the trunk in Early Espresso and the tree top in Wild Wasabi) and cut it out. The tree is popped up onto the circle. And there you have it! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
