Flourishes' Go Tell It on the Mountain

Hello, friends.  Vickie Y. challenged the Friends DT for Flourishes to use embossing, and I chose to interpret the challenge as dry embossing.  What a great way to take a look at embossing folders that I had not used before! I used the digital file for Go Tell It on the Mountain, that seemed to be the perfect accompanying piece for a new folder.  The card went postal to a friend who needed spiritual encouragement.

Camellia Love

Hello, Friends.  Our challenge this week from Flourishes Friends DT Toni is to use "silver."  I love this metallic paper and thought of it as soon as the challenge went out.  

Here it is paired with Camellia Love from Flourishes lc without a sentiment because I am not sure which event will come up that this card will be appropriate for. My plan is to have the sentiment at the base of the plant hiding the base of the circular shape.  Maybe this card will be for myself since today is my birthday!

Today's tip:  Have a pile of stamped sentiments on die cut shapes for events --birthdays, anniversaries, thinking of you, and sympathy-- and you can easily pop what you need onto a finished card at a moment's notice.

A Tree in the Breeze

Hello, Friends.  The Friends DT was challenged this week to create a scene.  I love this Fall Tree set from Flourishes lc and I thought of it right away.  I did a little digital magic and removed a pumpkin that was at the base of the tree so the image would be more spring or summer-like.   I used chalks for the sky, leaves, and ground under the tree.  I added the small bird images from the Winter Birds set. The sentiments are from Fuji Mums and Fall Tree.  

I think these will be wonderful masculine cards, but I added three different sentiments in case another occasion came up.  

Here is a close up of one of the cards:
