Crafty Creations Challenges: What's New?

It's technically my week off at Crafty Creations Challenges, but I was in search of a little inspiration and decided to play along anyway! This week, show us something new! I used a new image from our sponsor this week, Sew Many Cards:




I wanted to keep this card very pastel, so watercoloured the Love Tree image with distress inks. It looked like the perfect tree to lie beneath on a spring day, so I paired it with a "daydream" sentiment from a Unity set I picked up just before Christmas. (New item number two!) Unfortunately, the light colours made this tough for me to get a good photograph.  
Be sure to visit Crafty Creations Challenges to see what this week's design team has to inspire you... and consider this a good excuse to start using some new craft goodies!


Supplies: cream & Stampin' Up pink pirouette cardstock, watercolour paper, Sew Many Cards digital image, Unity Gratitude=Joy sentiment stamp, spun sugar, milled lavender, dusty concord, bundled sage, peeled paint, antique linen & vintage photo Distress Inks Pin It Now!

Definitely a daydreamy kind of tree! I'd love to sprawl out under it for a couple of hours. :)
