CPS - JustRIte Stamps and Colour Q challenge

The sponsor for this next weeks Card Positioning Systems blog is JustRite stamps. This is a happy day because these stamps are so fun to play with.
I didn't do this on purpose but after the card was finished I realized how fitting the green patterned paper by Webster's Pages was for the month of March! The embossed text cardstock behind the circle shapes is a piece from the Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions collection.
I used a Nestabilities that I have from Spellbinders to make my three circle elements that mimic the sketch. After I cut the shapes and embossed them, I sanded them so the embossing showed up a little better on the Core'dinations cardstock and then I punched out the middle of these shapes with a circle punch. After I stamped my sentiment with my JustRite stamps, I placed this stamped piece behind one of the punched out circles.
And, I found a new-to-me challenge this week, Colour Q color challenge. Of course I NEEDED to play along!
To start the direction I wanted to take with my card, I picked up a mini pad of papers I have from Little Yellow Bicycle from the Travelers collection. The colors were just right.
I used a 2 part chipboard tree from Maya Road. I painted the trunk and I coated the leaf portion with patterned paper from the collection. I have a little container on my desk of yummy buttons from PaperTrey, Inc so I just had to use them on my tree.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
