I'm finally back.......  It has been a couple of weeks since my last post.

I've created this card for my groups challenge - Patriotric Theme.  Without doing the colours of the flag or the Southern Cross, I decided to go with Black, Yellow & Red.  I only hope my trees look a little like the gums out home!  See what you think?

Base Card - Daffodil Delight - 5 7/8" x 4 1/8" or 15cm x 10cm
Layer 1 - Real Red - 5 3/4" x 4" or 14.5cm x 9.5cm
Layer 2 - Basic Black - 5" x 3 1/8" or 13cm x 9.5cm
Layer 3 - Whisper White - 4 7/8" x 3" or 12.5cm x 9cm

I stamped the tree image directly onto the Whisper White Card using Versamark Ink.  I then heat embossed the image using Black Embossing Powder

I punched the moon from a scrap of Whisper White Card & adhered it to the Whisper White Card.  Using my SU Sponges & Basic Black Ink, I sponged the bottom half, ensuring that the horizon wasn't in a straight line.

I sponged the next layer using Daffodil Yellow, followed by Real Red Inks.  Once sponging was completed, I carefully removed the moon & rubbed a little White Shimmer Paint on the moon to make it look like there was a "man on the moon."

I adhered the Real Red Card to the Base Card - Daffodil Yellow.  I then adhered the image piece of card to Basic Black Card & adhered it to the Base Card.  I coloured the Rhinestones using Basic Black Ink & applied a little Crystal Effects on top.

For my sentiment, I stamped it in Basic Black onto Whisper White Card, punched it out using my Oval Punch & then punched a piece of Daffodil Yellow with the Scallop Oval Punch and adhered to the base card.

Stamp Set - Lovely as a Tree, Short & Sweet
Ink - Basic Black, Real Red, Daffodil Yellow, Versamark
Cardstock - Whisper White, Basic Black, Real Red, Daffodil Yellow
