"B" is for Branch

Whenever I see brads on cards that are arranged in groups of 2 or 3, I think of braille letters (my oldest son is blind, so I'm around Braille all the time). The brads on this card make the letter "b"...

There was a color challenge on the PTI forum using Aqua Mist, Pure Poppy, Dark Chocolate and Kraft.

I think I should have done something for the background, but I wanted the card to look simple, and I only have a polka dot backgrounder (I think burlap or rice paper would look cool).

I really like the Out On a Limb set. It gives a view of nature that please me. When I was a girl, I was outside all the time, and had a panoramic view of nature. Ever since my college days though, my view has been pretty much out of the window of my room. Sometimes I could see an entire tree from my window, but most of the time it was a portion of the tree, just like this branch. Even after college, this has been my view...especially when my kids were little; somedays I didn't get a chance to go outside, but I could look out a window at a tree. We actually had a house that had a view like this card in our bedroom; only it was a crabapple tree, but it was so nice to look at...

SUPPLIES: Stamps...Out On A Limb, Mixed Messages (PTI); Paper...Dark Chocolate, Aqua Mist, Kraft (PTI); Ink...Dark Chocolate (Palette), Scarlet & Cranberry (Colorbox); Misc...Nestabilities, brads (Making Memories)
