Miss You Tree Card

Just a quick little post here as I make sure to make it for the Mojo Monday 142 Challenge. :)

The sketch for this little card is of course inspired by the Mojo Monday challenge, but the colors were from a CARDS magazine publication call. They wanted projects with red, orange and yellow. I set out with those colors and came up with a card but I later deemed it not worthy to submit (maybe it will be posted on this blog sometime). Tried again with these colors the day after the deadline and wondered why it couldn't have been this easy the first time, you know? Anyone ever have that problem: you get some challenges/submission requirements and the day AFTER you figure out something much better?

Anyway, I'm kinda liking the simplicity of this little card and I hope you do too! Now off to scrap some more! :)

Lovely card! The fun angles are fab and the different colors on the tree are just perfect for a fall miss you!
