A quick post this evening to upload a card I made for Freshly Made Sketches and the ColourQ challenge.  This was my first time to participate with the ColourQ gang.  I will be back!


Stamps:  Plant Hope, On Your Birthday
Paper:  Soft Suede, Pumpkin Pie, Island Indigo, Cherry Cobbler, Vanilla
DSP:  Soft Suede
Ink:  Soft Suede,  SU markers ... Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade, Chocolate Chip, Going Grey
Accessories:  SU stripes embossing folder, CB diamond pattern embossing folder, blender pen, large silver brads (not SU), dimensionals

This will be for my hubby's birthday.  He loves plants and trees ... the one with the green thumb in this family.

Thanks for stopping by and, as always, ...

Have a great day,

The first thing I thought when I saw your card is that it would be a great man-card! Great job! Thanks for playing with Freshly Made Sketches this week!

What a perfect card for a man with a green thumb. Neither of us have one, so I'm a bit jealous. :) I love the two embossing folders; along with the brads, they really make for a nice masculine card! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.

How awesome is this image. I love it!! Hubby is sure to like it, too. Great job.

Yes, Benz is very sad after Saturday night. Did I hear you cheering for that other team? :-)It was an awesome game just the same.
