Friendship Tree

This card is for 3 challenges:
1. Splitcoaststampers' CAS153 - Sketch;
2. Splitcoastampers' TLC316 - twine; and
3. Color Throwdown Challenge - CTD174 - soft sky, daffodil delight, river rock and soft suede.
First, I used pastels and a cotton ball to make the 3 color blocks, using die cut negatives as stencils. Then I stamped the tree and sentiment from Innovative Stamp Creations' "Birch Tree Paintings" stamp set. Added twine and button, and rounded the outside corners. On the inside, I stamped some grass and butterfly from the same set, and a sentiment which says, "May your day be as bright as mine is when I think of you!", which is from a set of Friendship sentiments I got at Michaels a long time ago...sorry, don't know who made them. tfl
