CC185, FS85 Hello


Good Tuesday evening!
My annual Cape Cod trip with the Girls was fantastic! It's so nice to be able to take off with my 3 best friends for a week end. Not one year has my DH hassled me about it. We go to the Cape once a year to celebrate the life of a dear friend who passed away 8 years ago. We laugh and enjoy the moments and memories, it's just a beautiful time together, and something magical happens every year to let us know that April is with us.
I still miss my challenges when I'm away, so it feels good to get a couple in tonight, actually it's a combo challenge. Today's color challenge, (very vanilla, baja breeze and kiwi kiss) and the Featured Stamper, who is the amazingly talented Shannon aka: E3stamper, what a gallery! Check it out when you can!
I chose to case this card. We have to change at least 2 things about the card we case. Mine are the stamps, colors, and I flipped the layout over.
I used my 'Friendship Tree' stamp and colored the leaves for fall by water coloring with my ink pads and a water pen. I cut out the image, just trimming around the outside leaves. I stamped the Baja bg panel with Inkadinkado 'blowing leaves' in Baja Breeze ink, and pierced this and the Kiwi panel.

Recipe:
Stamps: Stampington and Co., Inkadinkado
Paper: Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, Very Vanilla
Ink: black, Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, riding hood red, close to cocoa
Extras: paper piercer, ribbon, button, leaf punch, dimensionals

Thank you so much for stopping by, and keep smiling a lot! :):)
Hugs,
Denise :)

What a wonderful card and a wonderful tradition! What a special place Cape Cod is! My very first holiday with my husband was to the Cape, and I was never so enchanted by any other place! So glad you had a beautiful time with your friends!
