A Quart of Trees


I was excited to find two current challenges, Embellish and The Paper Players, that asked us to use trees on our projects.  I'm not sure why but I love tree stamps and I really have way too many of them.  Or not.  Can you ever have too many stamps?  Do you ever feel like no matter how many you have, sometimes you don't have just the right stamp for your card?  Despite how many tree stamps I have it took forever to find the right one for this card but I finally settled on this tree from Bella Trees, one of the first Unity sets I ever bought.  I used the colors from the Embellish challenge and I wanted to enter it in the Gallon/Quart/Pint challenge at the Moxie Fab World.  Cath says, "When following this rule, neutrals don't count" so the blue is the gallon, the green is the quart and the yellow is the pint.

Here's the latest map on Hurricane Leslie.  Preparations are in full swing!

I like this example of gallon/quart/pint! The bling adds just the right touch.
I'm not so much that way with trees, but birds, butterflies, flowers, cats, Christmas... okay I'll stop. :D
