Shady Tree Blossoms... no coloring!

Hi there! Here is that card I was talking about way back during the STS release. Its those pretty blossoms but this time in all their line drawn glory with no coloring. I love this card. I used a kraft base with echo park paper, harvest gold ribbon and lots of tea dye ink. I couldnt figure out where to put the sentiment so I left it off. Thats all there is to it! So hey, thats it for crafting today. I am going to keep updating the ends of my posts with the weight loss journey. Its keeping me accountable but dont feel like you have to read it! See you soon!
So day three of the diet is almost over. I did fabulous today. Every calorie accounted for, no mindless gobbling and I went to the gym. Its almost too good to be true! I have been eating a huge container of lettuce (and other veggies) for lunch with a bit of protein mixed in and its been working quite well. I have tried very hard to stay out of our staff room because it is nothing but junk in there! Trust me. So there you have it, a good day!

You're a gal after my own heart, Michele ~ I like to see the line drawings with no coloring sometimes too! This is perfect and I think you made a good choice leaving the sentiment off - beautiful just the way it is.

Love the yellow with kraft!!

Wow...this card just shows that you don't need to color flowers for them to be beautiful. Love your little pop of color with your scalloped border and pretty ribbon. Truly lovely!
