Trendy Mojo Trees!


I wanted to break out a stamp set I bought last month during the sale - Trendy Trees!  I just love this week's Mojo Monday sketch.. how fun is this sketch??

Here's my card:

What do you think of the grass?  I certainly didn't want my trees "floating", so I sponged a little Old Olive Classic ink along the bottom.  I added a little depth by drawing in some blades of grass with the Old Olive Stampin' Write marker.  The little strips on the side of the card were created out of cardstock and stamped with one of the stamps from the set and VersaMark ink.  I finished off the image panel with some faux stitching lines, drawn with the Chocolate Chip Stampin' Write marker.

The card is 4-1/4" square, so it will fit easily into a standard card envelope!  It is made from Summer Sun cardstock, one of the colors retiring in June.. be sure to get yours if you haven't already.. before it's gone!

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great rest of the night!
