LSC164 Lovely as a Tree



I have been falling behind with creating cards for my previous Blog Candy participants....

I have put some of my Fall and Winter Sets away, to make room for the new stuff and I had to go and dig
this wonderful "Lovely as a Tree" Set out of my box....

A handful of you, Cindy Royal "Royal Things", Sara Russell "Sara's Paper Creations", Linda SS, Jackie and Doreen - have told me that this is their favorite Set and I have made this card especially for you guys!!! I hope you like it ?!!?

The longer image from this Set really works wonderful with a long card....My card measures 4" x 8" and I used Chocolate Chip as my base. The main image is stamped in Craft Chocolate Chip Ink and I have embossed it with Clear EP. Then I layered it onto Wild Wasabi and then onto So Saffron CS. I have raised both layers with Stampin Dimensionals.
Before I placed the image to the card I've added a panel of Wild Wasabi.

Since there is no sentiment with this Set - I've added some medium Copper Brads on each side to fill the empty spaces. I never use my Copper Hodgepodge Fasteners and decided it would look nice on the corner of the image and just attached a DS Wild Wasabi Ribbon to it.

I'm still trying to work on some cards with your favorite Sets...so I hope you'll stop by again soon and see if I have picked your Set?!? A lot of you guys really love the "Tart & Tangy" Set and I'm trying hard to see what I can come up with, but so many people over on SCS already made exceptional cards - that I'm overwhelmed to create something......LOL!!! Just bare with me and I bet ya soon or later the perfect challenge comes around and I know exactly what to do.....

Have a wonderful weekend and ~TFL~!!!
