O'Tree Harry & David style

I had so much fun with these new releases. When I get those new stamps each month, I have ideas swirling around in my head.

For this card I did some recycling. I had bought some Harry & David chocolates awhile ago and absolutely *loved* the boxes they came in and had been hanging on to them for awhile. I envisioned recycling them in a different way then I did, but I'm very pleased with how it turned out.

2 of the panels use the box, the baja looking design and the gold paper. This new set from Clear & Simple Stamps, O'Tree, is part of September Playtime Collection Release available September 15, 2009. I embossed the tree and sentiment with clear & gold embossing powder. I am not very good with embossing but I love the look of it. Guess I need to keep practicing at it.

Don't forget this month you can also get the adorable new set Get in Gear along with our
