Palm Silhouette


Hi there!  I just have one card for today but it's for a few different challenges.  I love the palms silhouetted against the sunset in the photo at The Color Throwdown so I broke out my Memory Box palm die to use with their colours.  I also took inspiration from the photo over at Time Out - I kept the bright colours to one part of my card like the colors there are just in the window.  AAA Cards is looking for CAS masking and it's Make Your Mark week at Addicted to Stamps and More.  I inked my panel with Distress Inks and added a sentiment from CASual Fridays.  A thinking of you sentiment just seems suited to a lonely palm.



  












Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Stamp:  (Sentiment from Beanstalks) CAS-ual Fridays
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Abandoned Coral, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Dusty Concord) Ranger
Dies:  (Swaying Palm) Memory Box, (Circle) Reverse Confetti
Gems:  Recollections
