Lovely as a Tree-take 11

This is my One Plus Twelve, month eleven!  This was the brainchild of Kelly and she asked Jeanette and me to join her in this challenge. We are to use just one stamp, to make a card every month--but we may add a sentiment if we want!  One Stamp/Twelve Months-here we go into our 11th month of one plus 12.  We are to post on the 3rd of each month.  And--we just decided to continue this challenge in 2020--with a new image.  I have not picked it out yet, but be sure to check back next year to see our challenge continue!

As a mentioned for my first card in January,  I picked my favorite Stampin Up set--Lovely as a Tree.  It is now retired and it does make me a bit sad....  For my challenge this month, I used Nuvo Mousse on a Taylored Expressions stencil called Confetti Toss.  I then inked up my image with Early Espresso for a stark contrast to the background.  I think this looks a bit like snowflakes-just like the ones we had last week on Halloween-6 inches worth of flakes!  We went snowshoeing--the first time ever in October!

I added a retired Stampin' Up sentiment from the Warmest Regards set and hope to use this card this month!

Please be sure to check out the other One plus Twelve cards.  Here is a link to Jeanette's and Kelly's blog. I am sure you will enjoy checking out what stamp set is picked and will see a couple of great cards! I hope Kelly and Jeanette like my card and that you might too! We will be back each month, so be sure to check back to see what we are up to on the 3rd of December.  Only one more months to go using our images this year!

So pretty Barb, You've done marvelous with this stamp set. I don't think I could have made it 4 ways let alone 11! Festive and fun!

A classic stamp set for sure. I love your layout and what you did here. I may have to check out the previous ten cards and get some ideas for myself. TFS!
