Color Challenge

The October challenge at the DeNami Design blog is a color challenge.

I always seem to struggle when I am given specific colors to use.  Once I decided on a design for the card, it finally came together for me.

I used Round Leafy Tree and stamped it using Crumb Cake ink from Stampin' Up!.  I used Crystal Lacquer and applied glitter to the leaves of the tree.  I used Labels 18 from Spellbinders to cut out the image and the mat.   I popped up the image layer off of the mat using some foam scraps left from trimming stamps.

Edited to add:  Apparently, I was super inspired by Lisa's card on the DeNami Blog!  When I went to link my card, I realized our trees were very similar!
