Evergreen (C4C82, ODBDSLC56)
The Crazy 4 Challenges challenge is a color challenge. We are to use brown, green and vanilla. To me, those colors spell nature and masculine. The Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge is to make a card with no ribbons. You could use lace, hemp twine, cording or string, but no ribbon. I was going to use some hemp twine on this but felt it didn't need it. The quote and the silver embossed frame are from the ODBD "Eternity" set. The Spellbinders Nestie is from ODBD as well. The tree and pine cone are from Stampin' Up!'s "Lovely as a Tree" set. I also used SU!'s "Woodgrain" background stamp and the wood grain EF is from the Sizzix Tim Holtz collection. I used a Naturals Ivory base card and stamped and embossed the Soft Suede layer. The die cut piece is Very Vanilla sponged with Soft Suede ink. The tree and pine cone were stamped on Very Vanilla with Always Artichoke and touched up with the Soft Suede Marker. I did some fussy cutting on the tree. I used the MS Branch punch to punch the pine branches at the bottom. Thanks for stopping by!!
