PPA108-CAS-Elements of Style-Soften the Edges

Today's card is a result of using up some of the left over product sitting on my desk - if y'all saw my desk you would shake your head - I am one of those messy workers and always running so I never seem to clean up before the NEED to craft hits again. During the early part of this week I made a minialbum/card for DH for our 25th wedding anniversary. It was in blue and brown - hence today's colors.
I also did something else that makes me happy - I went to my little box of stuff I've stamped but rejected for other projects and found this tree from SU! Thoughts and Prayers. Added an owl from the retired forest friends. The card looked tooo plain so I took the little tree from forest friends and w/ versamark made my own patterned paper ....again!  A bit of HL ribbon and retired SU! brads and  I'm done.

c/s - SU! chocolate chip, one of SU! retired blues - not sure which one.
Patterned paper - scraps from the SU! MDS journaling I did for the card - its script in brown but I think my color ink was low so it doesn't match any specific SU! color
I haven't ever made a square card - but this was the size of c/s left over and I just scored down the middle and it was a square......

This morning I found the PPA108-CAS-Elements of Style-Soften the Edges challenge and it motivated me for todays card. Check 'em out - its a fun place.
Ppa pic I didn't realize till after that the colors were blue and brown as well.
thanks for stopping by! Andrea
