Thinking of You Friend

Good Morning!
First I would like to thank you all for your sweet comments on my Diaper Cake yesterday!! I had a blast making it and already have an order for one! yippee!
We are in another winter deep freeze here...
This card makes me wish for SPRING!!
I combined the Colour Challenge and Julee's Mojo75 sketch for my card.
This is a SU! only card.
Stamps: Trendy Trees; Cardstock: Pumpkin Pie, Summer Sun, Kiwi Kiss, WW and Good Morning DP; Inks: Choc chip and Kiwi kiss; Accessories: SAMJ, Mat pack and Paper piercer, Silver brads, Eyelet Border punch, Word window punch, Circle punches, Dimensionals
A couple of days ago, Kelly Lunceford, posted a super cool Matchbook Box Tutorial on her blog. I couldn't wait to work on it! I used some semi-thin inexpensive dp in case I didn't get it right....lol
It's wonderfully written and easy to understand. Takes minutes to put together!
This is what I came up with....a shot of it opened a bit.
Stamps: Bird on a Branch, A little somethin'; Cardstock: Kiwi Kiss, White and MM Paperie dp; Inks: Kiwi and Choc chip; Accessories: Oval nesties, MM Paperie buttons and flowers, Designer label punch, Misc ribbon, Sponges, Linen thread
Thanks for stopping by!
Tomorrow starts the All That Scraps previews!
