Color challenge trees

OK, I have never entered a color challenge before, but for some reason this one caught my attention. For more information about the challenge, check out the Color Me Beautiful Challenge .

So here is my project. I actually used all of the colors. My card base is Raspberry Ripple, with a mat from Soft Suede ( 4" x 5 1/4"), and the print is on Very Vanilla (3 3/4" x 5").

I started by tearing a piece of scratch paper and placing the torn edge a bit above half way and sponged a thin strip above the tear with Sahara Sand. Then I began sponging the sky with Pretty In Pink, followed by Primrose Petals, then Real Red, and Soft Suede (leaving a bit of the previous color showing). The Soft Suede is mostly just sponged around the edges.

Then stamp the image from Lovely As A Tree (115026) with Soft Suede (keeping the bases on the scratch paper.). Move the paper down just a bit and add another thin sponging of Sahara Sand. Move the paper around the rest of the bottom of the card and sponge to create more snow drifts.

I stamped the sentiment (retired) with Basic Black and dotted the canvas with Dazzling Details (124117).

I hope you enjoy this and have a great day!!!!
