I've been playing with my Ranger distressing inks today (Linda at a Crafting Journey will be proud of me) and a new embossing folder I bought a couple of weeks ago.

edited to say - the tree is an embossing folder - not a stamp - sorry for not making this clear!!

After popping over to Chrissies blog - Simply One of A Kind - I noticed a lovely card she had done as a DT member on the One Stop Craft Challenge - so being nosey, I checked out the other entries.  Guess what - I was so inspired by them all - and particularly the theme - Apple green, Chocolate and Clotted Cream, that I thought I would enter this one.

Here's my entry - I loved making this card which is an A5 easel card:


The DP is from some I got free with Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine some time ago, the card stock is a selection from my stash - I buy all my base card from the Papermill Shop, the little mullberry flowers I bought off e-bay recently, the plain green paper is a cut down 12x12 sheet from a K&Co pad - (Hopscotch) - everything inked with vintage photo distressing ink.  I coloured the leaves in on the embossed tree with my promarkers. 


The sentiment was a saying I found on the internet by poet Khalil Gibran (I wikipedia'd it - i'm no literary genius)!!!

Anyway - I'm going to submit this in Challenge 66 - Colour Challenge at the One stop Craft Challenge blog.  Hope they like it!!
