MC May/12 - Red Leaf - Thanks

It's been a while since my last post, but that's not saying I haven't been creating. I worked on and finished my 2 calligraphic pieces I'll be entering into this year's Stampede contest - but I can't upload them till June 27th - Sigh!!

This card was made specifically for a friend who just got back from a European cruise and stopped off in Amsterdam and bought me some "Neuhaus" chocolates - absolutely delicious. Yum!!

I was inspired by these red leaf, white blossomed flowers that are growing in my condo complex. They're just so pretty. So a little calligraphy, a little punching and a little die cutting and voila. Anyway to see more details and descriptions, just click on card image and enjoy

And it fits for these challenges:
Kaboddle Doodles  #121 Anything Goes
Flourishes  #171 Thank You
Top Tip Tuesday  #77 something older than 6 mths (leaf die and leaf stamp)
Penny's Challenges  #80 anything goes
Simon Says Stamp Challenge  anything goes
Card Makin Mamas  #46 use punches (Martha Stewart double edge punch "Blossom Trim" for the flowers) not dies

Great card! That is so nice of your friend to bring you some chocolates! I am sure she will love this card. I have one of those trees in front of my house and I LOVE seeing it.

Glad to see you playing along with us at Top Tip Tuesday; hope to see you back often:0)
