BC169 - I pulled it off!

If you are here for the Annabelle Holiday Preview #2 please click HERE - You won't want to miss this Blog Hop as the sets are really Cute!


Wow what a week it's been (didn't I say that last week?). Seems like the story of my life anymore.  As you know last week I had a Root Canal done and apparently during the numbing process they hit a nerve (Lingual Nerve) which has caused part of my tongue to remain numb.  It feels like I've burnt it all the time and there is an odd taste on that side of my mouth.  The "good" news is that eventually it should heal up.  Went for a follow-up visit and was told this can take from 6 weeks to 6 months to happen.

Okay on to the card cause that's really what you came here for, right?  Since I've been busy with the Previews for the Annabelle Release and have had company all week I wanted something fairly easy for the Blogger Challenge (use Brown/Green/Blue for your card) and this is what I came up with.  I've had this piece of Geometric patterned paper (DCWV) in my stash for some time so I got it out and went to work on my card.  The card base is Chocolate Chip and I layered some Baja Breeze and the DP. Then I stamped one of the tress from (Trendy Trees-SU) with Garden Green and Chocolate Chip inks on Whisper White card stock.  Layered this to Chocolate Chip, Garden Green and Baja Breeze cs.  Added punched photo corners, tiny blue gems and pierced a row under the sentiment with my paper piercing tool.  Also added a punch chain border of Garden Green.  -  Normally I'm not very good at CAS (Clean and Simple) style of cards but I think this one really turned out well and hope you like it as much as I do.

Be sure to check out the other BC Members blogs to see how they used these colors.

That's it for me this week.  Come back on Saturday for the next preview from Annabelle Stamps Holiday line.
