Last WCMD Challenge
So, I didn’t quite finish all of the challenges for World Card Making Day, but I got this last one in, for the TREE-mendous Challenge.

I decided to use a technique called Magic Pastels that I saw on the Workshop Wow DVD I bought at Stampin’ Up!’s convention this summer. First I stamped the oak tree in Sahara Sand (stamped off once) on Confetti White card stock. Then I added several pockets of color on top of the tree with the Stampin’ Pastels. The image was stamped again right on top of the Sahara Sand tree, with the help of my trusted Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, with Chocolate Chip ink this time.

The special card fold is called a Joy Fold, and my little ribbon and Build-A-Brad embellishment is keeping the card closed.

Thanks for stopping by!
