Season of Friendship Get Well

I should be cleaning or prepping something for next weekend, but I decided I'd rather make a card. Sometimes you just need some creative time! So I browsed my favorite challenges and decided to combine a color and sketch. The color challenge is at Hand Stamped Sentiments, and the sketch is the Saturday Sketch at Stamping 411. Here is what I came up with, after a brief struggle as to where to start! 


I decided in the process why I like this set, Season of Friendship. It lets you put colors together that wouldn't work as well with other sets. And with the different tree elements, it gives you lots of options!! 

Card base is Early Espresso, background is Pear Pizzazz DSP.  In the center, I stamped the tree in Espresso and added tons of leaves with Pear. Some leaves are full strength, some stamped off once.  I stamped three flowers in Real Red and two birds in Pacific Point, cut them out and attached with dimensionals. Oh, the flowers have Early Espresso brads in the center.  Layered onto Early Espresso, and attached over a narrow grosgrain ribbon in Espresso.  Get Well Wishes from Teeny Tiny Wishes was added in Pacific Point at the bottom right of the tree panel.

Thanks for stopping by!  I need to do something productive before calling it a night!
