Everybody Art Challenges

Feels like Monday, but it's Tuesday........gonna be one of those weeks me thinks when I never catch up, but at least as it's Tuesday some of favourite challenges are posting their new themes. And the first for me is Everybody Art Challenges which has the theme of "Blue and Brown".

My card is an embarrassingly simple one, but I really like the finished article and always think these two colours really compliment one another. I have used one of the new Autumn sets from Inkadinkado 95513 stamping cream cardstock with the swirly leaves using Brilliance Mediterranean blue. The tree is from the same set, stamped with the same ink and embossed with detail clear and the mats cut with Nesties on the Bug. The bottom border is punched with Martha Stewart embossed zigzag.......can you tell I like this new one in my stash and ribbon and gems added to embellish.

Hi Brenda

Great card.

I love the swirly leaves background stamp very much - and of course your new MS punch!! Still saving my pennies for this one.

Your card reminds me of an old "dinner service" we used to have in the family (now that has shown my age!!).

Love Jules xx
