FTTC40


I finished my FTTC40 card a day late (again) but at least there's no time limit on these challenges! Whew! The challenge is to use neutrals and add texture and a pop of color. I used Kraft as the cardstock base, stamping a backgrounder & sponging on wc paper in caramel, and then matting with a rust colored scrap from my stash. I stamped the tree from the Flourishes forest of trees set with Versamark, and embossed it with green ep. I added some red geo sparklers in various sizes and then dabbed the tree with a 2-way glue pen and added a light sprinkle of white flower-soft. You can see the details if you click the photo. The ribbon is from Michaels and I used the bow-easy to make the bow.
Thanks for stopping by!
