Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #383 ~ A Theme Challenge

Hello friends~  Can you believe it's time for another challenge over at Cupcake Inspirations?
This week is a theme challenge.  
Here's the sweet inspiration photo; the theme is TREE:

This week's sponsor is Paper Sweeties

and they're generously giving away a $25 store Gift Certificate so you'll definitely want to play along!!

Now on to this weeks card:
I cut a yellow gingham stitched rectangle using "MFT Blueprints #13".  I added a strip of aqua colored chevron paper cut using Lil' Inkers "Stitched Long & Skinny Rectangles" and adhered it in the center of the yellow gingham.  I then cut another stitched rectangle and added a bit of distress ink around the edges while it was still in the die, leaving the panel with a white border.  I stamped the tree and leaves from Simon Says Stamp "Giving Thanks" and I added some pretty lemon colored leaves for interest.  The sentiment is from PTI's "Phrases & Praises".  Two die cut button stacks finish this card off.
Be sure to visit all the fabulous designers to see how they've used these fun colors together!
Birgit ~ That's me!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I appreciate all your comments.  Blessings~ Birgit

What a perfect interpretation of the inspiration.........colors and the tree. I like how you inked with the die still in to get the white frame look; I have to remind myself to do that. I'm assuming you inked the blue background before stamping the tree but how you achieved the yellow over the blue is a mystery. Wonderful effect!
