CFC: April Showers Bring May Flowers

We are starting another week, and thought I would start by making a clean and simple card for this week's CAS-ual Friday Challenge.  This time we are challenged to make a CAS card featuring trees and or flowers since Spring is here.  One of my favorite SU! sets that I have is Trendy Trees, and I haven't played with it in a long time, so I thought I would get it out, and use it for my card.

In order to use this set properly, you will need to use a stamp-ma-jig, which is something else I haven't played with in a while.  It was fun stamping these trees in spring like colors.  Brings so much "happy" to the card, in my opinion.  I wanted to do add "something" to the card besides my tree images, so I just made a border on my card base by scoring the outer edges.  I punched out my trees with a 1 3/4 circle punch and popped them up on my card.  The colors I stamped the trees in are SU! colors Pink Passion, Daffodil Delight, and Lucky Limeade.  The tree trunks I stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa ink.  

I wanted to add a simple sentiment to my card - and this "Hello" sentiment comes from the Stampendous set, "Happy Messages".

In other news - I am looking forward to Friday for two reasons, one to see who has been chosen as this weeks challenge winners, and two I will be on 11 days of leisure!!  May 4th- 14th, I call VACATION!  I am so looking forward to the time!! 

I feel there will be shopping in my future for craft goodies during this time. :o)  Everyone have a nice week!!
