Hello and welcome to my blog! This week's Global Design Project challenge is a theme challenge and this week the theme is trees. We hope you will join us for this week's challenge. We love seeing what everyone creates. The Beauty of Friendship Stamp Set is a fabulous stamp set and looks so pretty in Blushing Bride to co-ordinate with the Blushing Bride Designer Series Paper from the Gingham Cottage DSP. Sadly I needed a sympathy card and I thought the tree and sentiment would work well for that kind of card! I love how, with just one stamp, you get the variation in colour! It looks so much better than me doing two-step stamping! For a step by step tutorial on how I created my card please click on the Tutorial button. All products are listed in the tutorial and below.

Please remember to head on over to the  Global Design Project blog  and check out all the fabulous creations made by my fellow team members

I chose to water colour through one of the masks from the Artistic Mix Decorative Masks. Elaine Schader had used it on one of her cards and I just loved it! If you like water colouring then you'll really like this technique and like water colouring, it turns out differently every time you do it! I also water coloured some Shimmery White Paper and die cut three butterflies from the Brilliant Wings Dies to add to the card! I'm going to be playing and creat
