Plant Hope for Arbor Day and PP92

To celebrate Arbor Day, I have a card featuring my beloved Plant Hope Stamp Set. This is one of the sets that Stampin' Up! is retiring at the end of May, so now is your last chance to purchase it. It's such a great set and there are so many different uses for it, including masculine and holiday cards.

The sketch is compliments of The Paper Players. I used torn paper in place of the scallops for my earthy card. A button with some Hemp Twine (also retiring in May) was used for "any shape".

The tree image was colored with Garden Green and Early Espresso Markers. After stamping the first image, I used the stamped off image two more times for a subtle background. The entire panel was sponged with Crumb Cake.

Sandy, this is beautiful! I love how you used the stamp set and the torn edges really add such a great "outdoorsy" feel. SO sad this set is retiring! Thanks for joining us this week at the Paper Players! :)
