FYI – Aspen Birthday

It is time for another For Your Inspiration challenge. Check out the latest challenge -> FYI46.

For Your Inspiration Challenge #46

This photo makes me happy – I’m pretty sure it’s the yellow. I definitely wanted my card to feel happy too.

by Karen @ carefree creations - Birthday Aspens

It was hard to get what was in my head onto paper. At first I tried embossing the trees with white powder onto colored cardstock, but that just wasn’t working. I decided to try stamping the trees with a pale grey – while not the normal color for an aspen, it allowed me to get the leaves to pop.

The card base is impressed with the woodgrain plate (hard to see in the photo).

Thanks for stopping by!
