Forest Friends Birthday

Today's MOJO 86 sketch has 3 panels, 2 smaller than the larger center one and I immediately thought of Forest Friends in current Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini catalog. I really wanted to put the tree in the center, but have it somewhat muted so I could stamp my sentiment right over it. In this case I used Close to Cocoa ink (stamped off once) and the "rock 'n roll" technique to touch the edges of the tree with Riding Hood Red ink. The R 'n R technique is today's CAS challenge on Splitcoast. I'm not sure this layout is exactly CAS so I may not upload it, but I have done another that is pretty CAS so I might post that one next.

Hope you like it! Hope my SIL likes it- it's a belated birthday card for her that better get in the mail today or I'll be in trouble. LOL!

Thanks for stopping by!

  9. Hi, what a cute card and using the tag punch is a great idea. I am a stampin up friend from New Zealand and we don't as yet have that stamp set, but will have to look out for it when it comes as your card is so great. Love the colors and everything about. I have just found out about Mojo Monday and this will be my third challenge when I do it. Take care
