Card #3 and a Peek at Decor Elements

Hi! I know I missed yesterday, but I'm back and I have a cute card to share. This one uses the Forest Friends set from the Occasions Mini Catalog. I just love the darling deer and bunny in this set! The accent piece with the deer was a CASE, but it was posted in a collage photo from a whole swap group and it didn't have the designer's name on it. I tried my hand at using the brayer. It's a tricky little bugger, but the results are so pretty and I know that with a little practice it will be much easier to do.
I used To the Nines Specialty Designer Series Paper (You have got to feel the amazing thickness and texture of this paper!)
for the background and some Versamark watermark stamping. I'm very happy with the results.

Next I wanted to share how wonderful theses Decor Elements pieces look on my good friend's bedroom wall! She placed the order at Darla's workshop and has been very under the weather lately, so I went to her house and put it up for her. She graciously allowed me to take a photo. The vinyl has a matte finish and looks beautiful. It was actually very easy to put up by simply following the included instructions. Thanks, Madolyn, for letting me share! Don't you think it looks great?



  1. I really love that tree and it looks great on your wall! The Forest friends card is adorable too!

  2. Good job with the card. I love that decor elements tree. Great job putting it up.

  3. Your card is adorable-great job trimming everything-and WTG on putting the tree up for your friend! I'd be a nervous wreck putting it up in someone elses house, lol. Hope she's feeling better soon.

  4. Beautiful card, love the color combo. Nice job on the "Tree" as well - I have one around here I'll have to give it a go at it sometime soon. TFS!

  5. Very cute card! Great job on applying the tree, too!
