I don't always get a chance to play along with the challenges over at MY SHERI CRAFTS CHALLENGE BUT when I saw the theme this week I couldn't wait to play! I recently got my new Spellbinders Just Swingin' die set and it was PERFECT for the Arbor Day challenge!!
I cut the tree and edge with Kraft paper and then cut a card base in a light blue card stock. I wanted my tree to have leaves so I went searching through my drawers for punches that would make some and I came across this one:
It is Martha Stewart Infinite Loops. Besides making a great trim, it was EXACTLY what I need to make my tiny leaves! A few pearls, some distressing and a swing and this card is done -- except for the perfect sentiment, that is -- I used JustRite Floral Thank You cling set.

This card makes me SMILE!

Boy Sheri, you have a clever mind to use that punch and come up with leaves! Love that SB tree and swing! Love the shape of the card as well! Perfect touch with the pearls! So glad you got to come play along with us girls! :)

LOVE your shaped card and that cleverly 'leafed' out tree with sweet little blossoms! The swing totally reminds me of many hours swinging in the shade as a girl on the farm -- think I may 'need' this die?!
