Spring Thoughts CC215, Caardvarks


Today, I combined challenges: SCS CC215 color challenge, and Caardvarks "Trees A Crowd" challenge. I cut multiple tree branch images with my Cricut using the Storybook cartridge, piled them up to make a tree. Then I stamped a tree trunk from a SeeD's set and paper-pieced it all together, using markers to make it all come together. I also did some chalking around the tree with gray chalk. I then used pink stickles to make little pink blossoms on the tree. On the side, I placed a brad in the middle of that section and wrapped silver cording around it. The background paper and the tree trunk are made of recycled wallpaper samples. Hope you like it. tfl
