Kindness ...

.... Good afternoon! It's a beautiful day here in Northville, but not quite as warm as it's been in the UK. Looks like the UK is having an Indian summer - the hottest day of the year there! I've just spoken to my son Ben and he says that it's baking - sadly he doesn't have air con at home :))

Anyway, I've spent a very pleasant, and cool, morning playing in my craft room. And I've made a card for a few challenges:

Stamps: Winnie & Walter - Kindness With; Neat & Tangled - Origami Map; Your Next Stamp - Jungle Critters 1
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black; Distress - Peeled Paint, Shabby Shutters, Twisted Citron
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Stampin' Up! Card - Basic Black, Pear Pizazz; Clear Embossing Powder; Copics; Wink of Stella - Clear; Sequins

Time Out quote: 
“Love the trees until their leaves fall off, then encourage them to try again next year.” 

I'm playing along with TIME OUT Challenges - TOC#65 where we have been inspired by a quote about trees and leaves (mine are heart shaped!). Also playing at Fusion Card Challenge - FUSION#57 and at Just Us Girls - JUGS#360 where they want us to use sequins.

I started by stamping the tree on some white card and colouring with Copics. I then added several shades of green ink, starting with Twisted Citron and finishing with Peeled Paint. I used my MISTI to position and stamp the sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black and heat embossed the sentiment with clear powder. I finished the front by adding some little hearts blowing in the wind and added a touch of sparkle with some red sequins. I layered the finished panel on black card and attached it to the card. On the inside I cut a mat layer of green card and on the white panel added another little tree and some more little hearts.

That's all for now - do drop by tomorrow to check out our new challenge at The Male Room. See you soon!

Such a pretty card. I like your ombre green background, and your sentiment is wonderful. Thanks so much for playing along at Time Out.
