For a pal

This week's Wednesday Stamper challenge is to use trees, and over at Gingersnap Creations, the challenge is the "Good Earth," and the Sisterhood is celebrating Earth Day! I made a card this morning, and quickly trashed it, it was SOOOO ugly! However, a pal of mine (Germaine...who does NOT, as yet, have a blog...for shame!) created this one, which I've decided to post for her. Please do leave her some lovin,' she's not particularly confident as a new card maker, and I think this one ROCKS!


Thanks for stopping by today...and leaving some encouragement for my pal!

OOOHHHH WOW!!!!. First of I totally love the overall card. I love the white space which really makes the black & light blue POP. It's simply beautiful. As for recycling by punching all those tiny flowers....wowsers. Yes, it definitely qualifies for Earth Day and Recycling.... and this card is simply beautiful.
PS: In a way I don't blame her for not getting a blog.... it does take away time from crafting :-)..... lo.
Thanks so much for playing along with us at the Sisterhood!

I LOVE this card! It is so pretty! Wow, did you glue on all those tiny flowers? Totally worth it, as they look awesome! I know I have a tree stamp somewhere ... I hope to copy your idea!

Hi, Deborah! Hi, Germaine! Terrific card! I love the aqua, black, and white color scheme and the way you added flowers to the tree! :-)
