My favorite tree

Unity is celebrating a anniversary, there are challenges going on this week. I thought I would join the FUN. This challenge was to use a bird or tree stamp, I absolutely LUV this tree. Doesnt it look so peaceful and inviting. I can picture this tree out in a grassy pasture, calling the young at heart to sit down in that swing and let go!! I always liked to swing when I was a little girl and couldnt wait to take my baby to the park to swing. I remember the day very well, I was pregnant with my second baby and Kalen was about 14 months old. We went to the park and together we went down the slide and did our share of swinging on the swing. I remember my sweet baby boys face, he luved it! The park was a favorite place to visit a couple of times a week with my boys!

ETA: Happy Cinco De Miayo ( that just doesnt look right)

I stamped the tree twice on colonial white cardstock, the second stamped image I then embossed with my spellbinder label. I popped the label off the card base in the exact spot on the 1st stamped image. I took a strip of blush cardstock and randomly stamped polka dots in blush ink. I embossed a strip of hollyhock cardstock with my EK success border punch. I then ruffled a strip of olive ribbon on top of the hollyhock strip. Last I took several hydrangea flowers I punched with my martha stewart punch and glued them to several branches on the tree.

I really liked the way it turned out, unfortunately with all my hhmm hhaawwing I missed the deadline to post to the boards for a chance to win.

Happy Wednesday to you, were almost done with this week:)
