Swap Card - Life is good

This isn't the best picture, but I think it shows off the card well enough. :) My team exchanged New Summer Idea Book cards at our last team crop night. I used a layout from the new Wishes card book (modified from a 5x7 down to a 4.25x5.5 card).

I used the new "Treetops" stamps and Spot on Backgrounds stamps. I also included a bit of the Back Country patterned paper, Heavenly Blue CS, Outdoor Denim CS, and Colonial White CS. Ink colors are Outdoor Denim, Bamboo, and Chocolate. I did the "rock and roll" technique on the tree top using Garden Green and New England Ivy. The tree is also popped up on 3d foam. I stitched around the outside of the card with my sewing machine, colored the dimensional elements bookplate with bamboo ink, and used Heavenly Blue brads as well. I think I'm going to send this one to corp for the monthy "Make it From Your Heart" contest too.

Hope "life is good" for you today!

I've been a lurker lately, taking in all of your stamping and knitting projects as well as the exciting news of your impending adoption! It's time to say "Hi!" And, yes, life is good! Your card is awesome, too!
