OSAAT - Use a Charm says Josephine

Well its Sunday again :O)
So that means its time for another One Stitch At A Time challenge. This week its Josephines' turn to pick a theme. She chose ' Use A Charm' .

So thats this weeks theme, 'Use a Charm'.

The sponsor time is Creative Craft World (click on logo to go to their store)

Lou is offering a set of 5 Promarkers to the winner :O)

My Card

My Creator that i had to work with this week was Tami who is Ginger Loft..
I must admit i saw this image which was part of a set of Trees and fell for it instantly.. You know how sometimes you just see a certain image and it has so many possibilities that it makes it into a perfect image ? Well this is one of those !! It could be spring, summer , autumn or even winter depending on how you chose to add colour to the sky, the grass or even the Design Papers that you put with it. The image that i used is available to buy here.
To make my card. I used a Promarker on the grass and for tree trunks. But then coloured around the main image using Mica powder. Green onto the grass. Blue for the sky and part of the sky in yellow to represent the sun.. If you click onto my card it should open up bigger.
I then backed the image with a light green plain paper then onto a yellow and green Design paper. I used my MS frond punch to make the leaves at the bottom of the card using a piece of green card. Finishing off the leaves with a gem on the tip.. I really think that the leaves match those on the DP ,so had to be used ;O) The charm is a tree one that i bought a pack of. For when i eventually Scrap my family tree ;O) It was attatched using a piece of gold thread and a foam pad to keep it in place.
Dont forget to pop over to the DTs blogs and spread abit of love. I cant wait to stop by your blogs and see all your fabulous creations. I hope that you enjoyed mine.
Choccy xx
