Three Challenges!!

I am loving this card! When I started it I was trying to hit two challenges - The Pink Elephant (stamps, punches and embossing) and Jen's SFYTT. I realized as I finished that I had also hit the Limelight Challenge - green/tree/recycle. Obviously, I hit the tree part!!

For the Pink Elephant Challenge...the sqaures were cut out with my Creative Memories Square punch, the brown cardstock under the tree is embossed with the Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes embossing folders and obviously the tree is the stamp.

I do love the way it came out. The cardstock is Bazzill, papers are We R Memory Keepers, the stamp is Unity's Dream tree (who doesn't love this stamp), KaiserCraft rhinestones, and the ribbon was in the stash.

Short post, but I have time to create, so I want to get to it. As always, thanks for stopping by! Hope to see you back tomorrow!
