The Good Tree of Life

My heart is so humbled after reading all the comments shared by so many of you, regarding my exploding box! I am pleased that you visit my blog and take the time to share your thoughts and kind words.

I have a new card to share today. It was made for 3 challenges:
Crafting Life's Pieces Challenge--sketch
Stamptacular--tree
Magnolia Down Under--black, white and one other color (lime)


The lime green color didn't translate well in this photo--bummer!

Tilda image--Magnolia
Tree and floral swirl for the border--Magenta
Solid lime green cardstock--Stampin Up!
Dotted green cardstock--DCWV, "Nana'sNursery, Baby Boy"
Black and white scallop border--ATD "Story of Us"
Copic markers
Distress ink for the edges, and Tilda's hair
All images were stamped with Memento tuxedo Black ink onto white cardstock

The tree is popped up from the card, and Tilda is popped up in front of the tree.

Addendum, Saturday May 22, 2010:
Thanks to the Magnolia Down Under Design Team for choosing this card
as one of their top 5 cards for their Week #46 challenge! Whoo-hoo!
