TSSC185 and Just Believe

Not only has another week passed, but another month! Where does the time go? I seriously need to "summer up" before it's over! So, here we are with another awesome TSSC Challenge,  and here is my take on it. I had intended on making something entirely different, but actually really like the way this card came out. I love the Cherry / Vanilla / Black combo. Here is the sketch...

...and you can play along, if you like, by clicking here. The leafy image from the Just Believe stamp set looks a little more special when it is embossed with black embossing powder. I tried to capture a little of the shine in the photo, but it's even shinier in person. This is also my first time playing with First Edition Newsprint, and love it! (I know, I'm a little behind the curve!). It was also the basis of my color scheme.

Just Believe is super versatile and has so many great images. Check them all out! It also has several simple greetings, which is a big plus in my book.
