MFT June Release Replay

It's time for this month's Release Replay, at My Favorite Things, when the 
Creative Team shares fresh takes and new ideas with the June Release.

I chose to play with Trees in the Forest Die-namics because those little trees
are so cute! And as soon as I saw them, I knew that I wanted to pair them with
planter pots and turn them into bonsai plants.

Trees and planters were ink distressed with several colors of Distress inks.
Watercolor card stock was ink distressed and cut with the rectangle element 
from Blueprints 24, then adhered to a Stone Gray card base.

I adhered a strip of dotted paper on the card, and added the plants, popping them
up with dimensional adhesive. The sentiment was white embossed on a strip of
Black Licorice card stock, trimmed into a banner and adhered to the card.
Enamel dots finished off the card.

participating design team members took on the replay challenge.
Thanks for stopping by!
