CASual Fridays #71--Fall Fun


CASual Fridays #71 is Fall Fun--to create a clean and simple project 
inspired by autumn. Here's my take on the challenge.


A (discontinued?) Memory Box tree was inked with Crushed Olive, Wild Honey,
and Tea Dye distress inks, spritzed with water then stamped on watercolor paper.
After it dried, I stamped the Paper Smooches sentiment and rounded off a corner. Done.

Living in Hawaii, we don't get to see the changing of the leaves in fall. 
Our trees have either green leaves or brown leaves.


Case in point is this tree that I'm trying to keep for sentimental reasons but
our yardman declared it "half dead". He's determined to revive it with some TLC
and if he succeeds, then he'll be getting my card.

Just under the wire, I'll be squeezing this card into Moxie Fab World's 
Design Handbook Repetition Challenge.
Have a fantastic week!

  14. Love, love, love that card. The colors, image, and sentiment are perfect for this season of giving thanks. My parents also had a tree like that in their yard...lantang? I wish they were still alive so I could ask them if I got the name right and what happened to that tree. I think it was a symbol for good luck. Thanks for reviving my memories of them.
