Up for Another Challenge

Dawn McVey posted her second challenge this week on her blog HERE. The great thing about participating in these kinds of challenges for me is, I usually work with different combinations of colors, something new...and, I usually end up using something from my stash that would otherwise be sitting around "until I got around to it."
As you can see, the challenge colors for this week are...Brown, Teal, White and Celery.

And, here's what I came up with:
I needed to make a card for my Sister-in-law's birthday, so I used the challenge colors to get me started. I also used my new "Trendy Trees" stamp set from Stampin' Up. I love these simple designs.

Here's a close up:
The patterned paper is from (green) DCWV and (blue) Making Memories. The scalloped rectangle is a die from Nestabilities. The tree stamp is from Stampin' Up and the birthday sentiment is from Hero Arts. I love the simpleness of it. Thanks for taking a look!
