I looked out the window here in Pittsburgh and saw the colors changing on the trees and was reminded of the beautiful SU Sheltering Tree stamp set. I have never posted a card using this set so I made a “last days of summer” card.
It just so happens that Stampin’ Up Only Challenges # 130 has a FRIEND theme so I added the sweet sentiment about friendship found in the set.
I used a color palette of Very Vanilla, Old Olive, Real Red, and Early Espresso. The main Very Vanilla panel is 3 1/4″ x 4 3/4″ bordered 1/8″ larger with the Espresso and Red borders. My sentiment banner is 1/2″ bordered by 5/8″ Espresso. I like the look of thin borders:)
FYI: Sheltering Tree was carried over into the current annual catalog from last spring but in case you have not taken a serious look at it…here it is!
