Let the relaxation begin!

We went to a retirement lunch at the last minute today, so I quickly whipped up this card. It is based on three challenges!

1. Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #9 Grass green, cream, black
2. Paper Popsicles Card Challenge #3 (masculine card, decorated on the inside)
3. Mojo Monday Week #90 sketch


I wanted the dotted circle thing (one of the trees from Trendy Trees) to be the sun on top, but also wanted to follow the colour scheme, so I just embossed with Versamark on the Very Vanilla paper.

As usual, I just eyed the tree trunk/tree boughs placement. Close enough! ;)

I love how it ended up looking like some sort of shield. Cooh, huh?

Stamps: Congrats, Trendy Trees (SU)
Paper: Very Vanilla, Wild Wasabi (regular and textured) cardstock (SU), black (Bazzil)
Ink: Wild Wasabi, Basic Black (SU), VersaMark (Tsukineko)
Accessories: 1 1/8" circle punch, Top Note die (SU), Labels II Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Cuttlebug (Provo Craft), clear embossing powder (StampCraft), 1" circle punch (Marvy)

I love the idea of using the top note die on the inside! Perfect if making a card out of something other than white...
