one more entry. . . .

for the two "anything goes" challenges:  Simon Says Stamp and Word Art Wednesday.  SSS has almost 1000 entries thus far and will probably get another 100 or so by the deadline!  It's all in the luck of the draw, you know.  :)))



I love this tree die from Memory Box.  I decided to place it against an embossed panel that was sanded a bit to bring out the design.  The bird and a strip of washi tape to embellish the sentiment strip were all I wanted to add.

Today has been a very rainy first day of July.  But, the temperature was nice and I am just happy that it is summer and we don't have to shovel all of the precipitation!

Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog and for all of your sweet comments.  Love hearing from you!

edit:  I am not sure why the bottom of this card has a pink cast to it!  Must be the overcast weather.  So sorry!

Your layout is superb and the embossing and die cut really work well together.

Great card with nice balance - love that background, too. I agree, the anything goes is a real crap shoot - ha!
