I really think this is a nice CAS card and I'm sooo jealous of your perfect daubing around the tree!! (I'm hopeless at it!!)

That Lovely As A Tree stamp never gets old and I never get tired of seeing new cards made from it. Nice card you did a good job.

I love the stamp set and I love your card. It reminds me of a porceleine plate. Thank you for playing at Try Stampin'.

Oh, I LOVE this, Sandra!! With the prelude you'd written, I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was impressed when I saw the picture! Love the leaves stamped all over the bottom panel, and the little cut-out leaves; a nice touch.

Very nice card Sandra! Glad you could play along at Try Stampin On Tuesday.

Hi Sandra (like your name),
Love the card. I am a great fan of using the negative area and shading -- you did do a great job and perfect using the Crumb Cake for your colors!! I thought the leaves for your adornment was a brilliant idea. Thanks for joining us for Try Stampin' On Tuesday.

One of my all time favourites stamp sets Sandra! This is fab. I can see a few "Man" cards being made like this by me now. Thanks always for the inspiration! ♥

PS I am still having computer probs ... after a major crash! Access to the internet is frustrating me ... even though my dh has solved the main probs. Off to scroll through what I have missed over the last few days ... but with so much to catch up on ... I don't have time to comment on each post, sorry! Hugs xxaxx
