TCC #21 and a Party!

Hello Friends! We had fun morning taking the children to a pond a few minutes from our house - it was wonderful!! I bought a season pass and I'm sure we'll be hanging out there a lot this summer! I don't know why we had never been there before because it's only 5-10 minutes away and it's perfect for the children.

Ok, I wanted to quickly show you a card I made early this week for Taylor's Cupcake Challenge #21 - I got my submission in late but it was a really neat sketch and I had fun making a card that was a bit different for me.

This card is for a friend of ours who happens to love trees!! Their business is trees and you can just tell it's the perfect business for them! I've had this American Crafts paper for while and it just seemed perfrect for the fun feel of the Papertrey Ink Father Know's Best tree. The buttons are again from my button tin - I love how perfectly that blue one matched!

Cardstock: Stamper's Select White (Papertrey Ink), American Crafts dp, Basic Black (SU!), Stamps: Father Knows Best, sentiment is from the Anniversary set (not available for purchase), Inks: Palette Noir, Landscape, Accessories: Corner Rounder, Dimensionals, Nestabilities, Ribbon (American Crafts), buttons, paper piercer
