Forever Young

One of my friends, has the stamp set, Forever Young and it reminds me so much of my youngest daughter, always on a swing as a young girl...we never had one attached to a big tree, but she loved the swing set.   Thinking back to when I was young (many years ago!!!!!!!!!!!) I loved the swings too.

Here is the card I made:

I used the stamp set, Forever Young, and the greeting is from Petite Pairs.   The card base is Calypso Coral and the embossed card stock is Pool Party (my new favorite color).   I stamped the tree in Soft Suede and the used soft suede card stock layered behind the tree and used three punches in lucky limeade, soft suede and whisper white for the greeting.   I added 3 tiny pearls to the edge of the greeting.  

This is an original, I used the sketch from Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge.   I need to challenge myself more to use all those stamp sets I have and joining a challenge like this is the best way to do it.   Go There and check out all the wonderful cards others have submitted.   AND I Challenge you to do a Challenge too.
