Last Diva Challenge of 2009!

That's right, this is the last challenge of 2009 for the Diva Coffee Break Design Team! I hope you enjoy this beautiful color challenge- I sure did. I used my new extra-large punch the Two-Step Bird for this. I wanted to push the envelope for me with the branches by punching them in chocolate and olive then piecing them together- not once but three times. I know there are many stampers that wouldn't think twice about this, but I usually wouldn't go to the trouble.

This one was fun! I did use some old Print Patterns in Close to Cocoa- long ago retired. Isn't the font on this new stamp set, Well Scripted, so pretty? I just love it!

My two little flowers were made with three layers of one of the flowers from the Boho Blossoms punch. I kind of wish I'd done a third, but ran out of patience and time.

Anyway, gotta get to bed. Thanks for visiting today!

PS- Forgot to mention that this sketch is from the CAS blog challenge FTL72!
