Bloggers challenge ~ Chocolate, sage and a neutral

Clean and simple. Back to the basics. This card was made using stampin up's designer series CARD STOCK, to the nines.

This went together in minutes! I cut a piece of 12 x 12 cardstock down to 4 1/4" x 11, then scored it at 5 1/2" I had a one inch piece left over that I used on the left hand side of the focal point. I stamped my tree from Forest Friends, a new stamp set that will be released in April, using sage shadow and chocolate markers. A little chocolate ribbon and one of the gorgeous "chit chat" rubons and this bad boy was done! I love that the DSP is the inside of my card and because it's sage shadow, you can still write on it. Why cover it up?? it's gorgeous! :)

Check out what my girlfriends from the bloggers challenge group are doing with this color set today. You wont be disappointed!
