The Beauty of Friendship

My card this week was inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiment Inspiration challenge and helpful neighbors. My husband and I are so blessed to have such wonderful neighbors. This past weekend our neighbor helped with replacing our patio fan. It really needed to be replaced. We were prepared to call a handy man to replace it but they were here a couple of weeks ago and offered to help in replacing it. I ordered the fan and our neighbor came over to take down the old fan and install the new one. The Inspiration Challenge at HSS has such wonderful outdoor images. The trees inspired me to use my Beauty of Friendship stamp set and Beautiful Trees dies. It’s a one layer card I CASED from Anna Helman. I stamped the trees on to Sahara Sand with Early Espresso, Mossy Meadow, Pear Pizzazz and Shaded Spruce. The strip of foliage I stamped with the different greens and Crushed Curry and combined with an embossed strip of Crumb Cake. I used the Timber 3D Embossing folder. Then sentiment I stamped with Shaded Spruce on Basic White then die cut with the rectangle from the Beautiful Trees dies and layered with a layer die cut with the Elegant Tag punch. I embellished the tag with linen thread and Parakeet Party Metallic Woven ribbon.
