The trees are bare
It has been pretty cloudy here in NC lately, and most of the leaves on the trees have fallen. Looking outside reminded me of a stamp set I own called "Lovely as a tree." I pulled that stamp set out to make this card. I stamped the trees on glossy paper using Brilliance Lightning Black ink, which actually looks like dark gold. I matted the trees on some orange paper from the Basic Grey Mellow line. I cut a rectangle of pattern paper from that same Basic Grey line, and adhered that to the brown card base. Then I adhered the matted trees on to the pattern paper. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment at the bottom using white pigment ink. The sentiment I used is truly how I feel. I do count my friends as blessings. Without them, my life would lack some beautiful colors!
