cutest tree ever! October 3, 2007

Took on todays scs SC144 (sketch challenge).  I just received Big Celebrations stamp sets.  I think this is a cute stamp set that may be overlooked by some.  If you love to watercolor…it’s a must for your collection:)  And a very versatile set covering any occassion.

Isn’t this tree so stinkin’ cute?  So whimsical.  Someone commented that it reminded them of the Grinch.  I just love it:)  It’s hard to see in the pic, but there is scalloping on the right side of the card where the DSP ends.  And I added a little ribbon tab to the upper left of the card just for some balance.

    Fabulous card!! I’ve always loved this set, but you know I’m too lazy to watercolor usually! You may have convinced me to go for it with this set, though! Love it!
