Nacho 10

Good morning, Friends! Are you all ready for a great weekend? We have a soccer game later this morning and then the rest of the day is free!!! Whatever will we do? Well, there is a lot that needs to get done around here - lol! So it will be nice to be at home. I hope to get some more sewing done. But no special plans for us today. Here's hoping that the boys win their soccer game today!! Woohoo!!

Today's card was inspired by the color challenge at Nacho Average Challenge. The colors are Wild Wasabi, Early Espresso and Raspberry Ripple. I used Crumb Cake for my neutral and I have to say that I do love the way this one turned out! This stamp set, Evergreen, is one I had to have right away but hadn't gotten it out yet, so I decided to ink it up using these colors. This might be a contender for my Christmas cards this year! I stamped the solid part of the tree in Wild Wasabi - I stamped off lightly before stamping it onto the Crumb Cake panel. Then I stamped the words in Early Espresso. You may not be able to read the words but they are the words from Silent Night. Then I stamped the detail part of the tree in Wild Wasabi without stamping off. I did use my stamp-a-ma-jig to get everything straight. Then I sponged around the edges in Crumb Cake. This panel is adhered to a piece of Early Espresso and I added two strips of Wild Wasabi that had the ends flagged. I popped this up onto a piece of Raspberry Ripple that had gone through the Big Shot with the Fancy Fan embossing folder. And all of this is adhered to a card base of Crumb Cake. Finally I added a rhinestone to the top of the tree. Great colors together!! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
