A new challenge and a new purpose

I thrive on challenges because they get me moving!  Having visited Jacqueline's always-beautiful blog today, I saw that she was participating in a blog challenge on "Sideoats and Scribbles" called "Make-It + Mail-It."   It was exactly what I needed!

I began by choosing 3 pieces of patterned paper from a 6x6 Memory Box pad and a deep edge punch.  (Along the way, I changed my mind about the punch when I remembered a new set of fancy tag Shapeabilities from Spellbinder.) The card was completed in 20 minutes, which is a record for me. (Each photo will enlarge with a click.)

Stunning Card. I really like the colors, just the the cherry blossoms or the redbuds we have in this area. Darlene

A lovely clean and crisp card Evelyn, and what a bonus that you let us view the process. Love the way you have stamped the Branch image(what stamp is that?) Your fancy tag is beautifully done.
Did you think of perhaps placing it 3D?
It is a constructive criticism Evelyn not meant to offend.
