Thoughtful Branches-Fix it Friday

 Simple is good right?  I like this card because there is not a lot too it, but it is still eye catching.  So, how could I fix it to make it a little bit more eye catching?

 You can see that I kept the same colors, Always Artichoke, Cajun Craze, and Delightful Dijon.  I also kept the Woodgrain embossing folder and the styles of the leaves.

To make it a little more eye catching, I took a piece of water color paper and made my own background paper by painting a little of each one of the colors on the paper.  Then I cut out the leaves.  I stamped the solid leaf in Delightful Dijon ink and arranged the leaves around the saying.

Which card do you like the best?  I personally like both of them.  

Here is what the Thoughtful Branches cards looked like this week.  What great fun I have had with a stamp set that will be ready for anyone to purchase in August.

Come back next week to see what I will do with the Swirly Bird stamp set and matching thinlit.  They were featured in a class I had on Monday so I wanted to share them with all of you.

Don't forget to follow me if you have been enjoying my blog, and share this blog with your friends.  Have a great weekend and try to stay cool.  Here in Illinois the temp could get to be over 100 and the heat index as high as 115.  


  1. Love this card and the multicolored effect on the leaves.
