California Dreaming!

My card today is for two challenges

The colours are from ColourQ

and the lay out from this sketch over at
Stampin' Royalty             

This is what I did while driving myself mad singing the Mama's and Papa's song "All the leaves are brown"

I randomly stamped some text and a franking mark on some blue card and laid it on an ivory base. This was topped with some DSP, embossed rust card, and yellow card stamped with leaves and splodges.

The tree was stamped in rust and coloured with Write markers before cutting it with a Nestie and matting it on some navy card. The sentiment was done the same way with two leaves added for extra design.

Supplies :
Card = Whisper White, Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Rust and Navy, and Ivory base FMS
Stamps = Leaves of a Tree, French Foliage, and Verve
Inks = Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Midnight Muse, and Adirondack Rust
Tools = Big Shot, Nestabilities, Stamp-a-ma-jig, and Fancy Fan EF
Extras = SU DSP, 3D pads, and Navy Organza Ribbon

I'm a very happy bunny today.......the sun is shining and drying loads of washing, the French Open and Monaco Grand Prix are on the TV, and I'm crafting, what more could you ask for?

Enjoy the rest of the weekend
