Today's card is for the final April challenge at the CCEE Stampers
with our hostess, Lynn!
Her challenge for us this week is TREE-mendous!
Tomorrow is Arbor Day!
Therefore, I am asking you to let a tree
be the star of your CCEE design this week!
out your favorite tree stamps and join us in celebrating Arbor Day.
Here in South Florida, we have the most beautiful tabebuia trees
that blossom only for a few weeks in the spring.
They burst with beauty and vibrant colors of pink, lavender and golden yellow! As I'm driving, I often see the wind rustle through the branches
and they float down to the streets, similiar to falling snow.
Oh, it is a sight to behold!
I used my prismacolor markers to color the trunk
and dotted around the branches with the tip of pinks/peach markers,
giving it a small dot to represent the tabebuia.
I colored the Pure Innocence girl and the puppy (from a different MFT stamp set, Birdie Brown's Friends at First Sip)
The border/hills are from various dies in my stash :)
There is a matching sentiment to this card, on the inside :)
In addition to stamped trees, remember that Arbor Day is a wonderful way
to see how trees can benefit your community!
We've adopted several fruit trees from our local adopt-a-tree program
and our backyard is flourishing with avacados, mango, lychees
and a hybrid sour orange tree ~
as well as a sea grape and, of course, palm trees!
Be sure to stop in the CCEE Stampers blog and see what the Design Team
has created and link up your cards!
If you chose to use an online gallery, or something other than your blog
use the keyword CCEE1917.
Thanks for stopping by!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
