Tree Welcome

Welcome

I have guests due shortly, and this is the card I made for them.


It is a bit larger than the last one, and square.


The tree (Seaweed) stamp is one I bought from Kiwistamping earlier this week. I stamped it in Espresso ink, masked it, and then sponged it with bundled sage, and overstamped it with desert sand ink using a Hero Arts woven background.


The sentiment is part of a Stampendous stamp, Welcome baby, stamped in Crushed Olive ink.


The edges were sponged with the bundled sage ink.

The guests are nearly here so I had better run... and will link up later to some challenges.

Thanks for visiting - any comments you may leave are deeply appreciated.
May your day be blessed
