miss you

This card is for Flourishes' Timeless Tuesday challenge. Maki is the host this time and she challenges us to use either leaf or tree images, and not to use flowers as the focal point.

I used one of my all time favorite stamp sets, Swing Set, and colored the tree with four different colors of shimmery paint, trying to make it look like the 'leaves' are changing colors. It is pure coincidence that the coloring matches the dyed silk ribbon - love it when that happens!

This close up is to show the shimmer.

My friend Rosemary is the current guest designer on the Flourishes blog. It's been very fun to see her beautiful cards here this past month.
Have a great weekend.
