ssnotime#54 Maple Tree


Happy TGIF!!!

I have not played any *ssnotime* Challenges in a long time.....and finally I had some time to participate!!!

You can read about Sharon's Challenge#54 right here.

For my card I used the new *Innovative Stamp Creations* Set called *Maple Tree Paintings* - it is sooooooo beautiful and this Set comes with three different sized *trees*!!! The sentiment is also from a *ISC* Set called *Textured Backgrounds and Sentiments*.

For this Challenge I opted for the deeper, richer colors - Old Olive and Chocolate Chip. I used Markers and Ink to achieve this look. Unfortunately I don't own any dew drops in this color so I've added some mini Gold Brads!!!

You all know my super talented and sweet friend Denise *peanutbee* - she has come up with this fab idea to stamp/decorate the inside of her cards.....so when I saw this Set I knew I wanted to use the smaller tree inside my card - I really like the way it looks!!! Thanks Denise for inspiring me today!!!

Have a great weekend!!! ~TFL~

This is just beautiful, Silke! That tree image is so nice and the coloring you did is really pretty! I definitely would love to start doing the inside of my cards as well as envelopes...I always seem to forget about that! Beautiful work!

This is amazing Silke! I love that smaller tree inside the card.....I have a hard enough time doing the outside of the card let alone the inside LOL!!

I love it Silke!! Perfect for a sympathy card. Gorgeous images too. Love the stamping on the inside. Denise definitely inspires me to pay attention to the inside of my cards as well. No dew drops? I thought I was the only one who didn't own any! LOL!!
