Hi there! I'm combining a couple of challenges here with this card- first up is the tree/branch challenge from Cards Blog. Second is this sketch by CPS:

I'm using more of the aqua/kraft combo here- it's so soothing! :) The tree is a clear die cut by Deja Views. I adhered it to some white cardstock, and then just cut around the outside. (The white paper helps show the die cut's color and the white border helps it stand out) :) The raspberry scalloped border might look familiar- it's the rest of the Target dollar spot punch-out. The yellow rick rack is from my stash, and I believe the white & pink striped ribbon is some leftover Making Memories. The ribbon slide is by Colorbok- I've had that forever! I stamped the Fiskars sentiment with Versamark ink and embossed it with white powder.

I have to say these colors are a little out of my comfort zone, but I pushed myself to do something a little different, and I'm really happy with how it turned out! I also tried to take a better picture. Everyone else seems to have a great set up, so maybe I need to look into a light box or something.

Tomorrow I'm heading out to a city about 30 minutes from my house that I don't normally go to, to do some serious shopping! I saw that there was a Hobby Lobby there (it must be new!) last week, so tomorrow I'm going to check it out. I'm also going to Michael's, AC Moore, Joann's, and Big Lots- they're all about 5-10 minutes away from each other- how convenient! :D I hope you all have a fabulous long weekend!

How cute is this? I love it .. the scallops, the colors and the tree. You did a wonderful job of leaving your comfort zone. It really is such a pretty card!
And shopping.... Now that sounds like a good time. And you have all the stores in one area... That is the cherry on top. Have a super fun time. Oh the temptations...... I don't know what I would do with that many stores to visit at one time.
