Stampin' Up!'s Lovely As A Tree

I have been so terrible about sitting down at the computer to blog so today I decided to research a good app so I could blog from my iPad. I now have an app to edit my pictures, one to apply a watermark easily and one to blog. What does this mean to you? It means more consistent blogging (hopefully)!

This also means a lot of catching up on cards I have made over the last six months. This will include retired product but I will try to make suggested substitutes from the new catalog.

I love Lovely as a Tree and hope it will never retire but I am sure it will someday - but not this year! I love the serenity of a single tree. In this card, we stamped in Basic Gray and then sponged in blue hues. Finally, we used a Signo gel pen to highlight the tree and ground.

The sentiment is from Perfectly Penned.

Colors are Whisper White, Pool Party and Midnight Muse.

Embossing folders are square lattice and Woodgrain. Banners framelits were also used.

Here's the inside of the card.
