2RB Banana Split Sunday Challenge

Sorry I've been gone so long. I've had a LOT of stuff going on since... basically since about Halloween. It's good to be back.


This week's 2RedBananas' Banana Split Sunday Challenge is to use... drumroll, please... a tree! Just include a tree on your project. Be sure to go to 2RB's blog to enter your project, and to see all of the great samples from the Design Team members.
This week I decided to so with a card. I think I'll be using this for my Christmas card this year, since that's what I orignally sat down to design when I realized I hadn't gotten my sample ready for the challenge yet. Oops.

The card base is black CS with a block of DP from sei's Alpine Frost collection. The sentiment is from 2RB's Winter Wishes stamp set and it was stamped on black CS with Moonlight White ink. The tree image, by Stampin' Up, was also stamped with Moonlight White ink. The center tree has rhinestones and a silk ribbon bow tied around the trunk.

This was a really easy card to put together. I hope 2RB has inspired you to make a tree card (or whatever) and participate in this week's 2RB challenge.
