This was actually the first card I thought of for this challenge and uses Solemn Stillness with Handsome Hunter and Sage Shadow. I really like the effect of embossing the squiggle tree over the darker background. I used the faux tearing technique for the background with Sanded but in hindsight think it may need something a bit fuller like Paisley.... All was finished with Silver Hodgepodge.
This was my last attempt and it almost didn't happen because I was behind on writing my assignment. I masked an oval (actually the 0 from the On Board Simon Lower Chipboard) and stamped flowers from Time Well Spent in Rose Red, Tempting Turquoise, Garden Green and Green Galore for the background. 'Friends' in the main greeting was coloured using a blender pen and ink pad and I doodled inside the masked oval for a bit of definition. I really am quite happy how this turned out - considering Gestational Diabetes was the main topic on my brain at that moment!
