From Our Home to Yours

Hello Blog Friends ~
I created this card for 3 challenges: Less is More Week 143. Our recipe is to use string or twine, for the SSS Monday Challenge "Anything Goes" and for the Muse Card Club Challenge. This week, our inspiration card was created by the amazing Janet Ribet.

I’m having a hard time capturing details using my light box when I use Embossing Folders/Impression Plates, so once again I took this photo in the natural light in my kitchen...hopefully, you can see the embossed detail on the white panel. 


Here is my card:




And, since I'll be making cards for my family and friends a bit later, I will be donating this card to the 2013 Caring Hearts Card Drive.

I hope everyone is well...Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by ~
Barb

Love this cute card, Barb! The embossing folder is a perfect backdrop for this design. That green circle provides a nice resting spot for the tree.

The background is great, and the circle really pulls the eye to your focal point. So fun.

I gave up on my light box and now wait for the daylight for my photos it's always a lot more reliable. The embossing looks great Barb!
