JAI 254 colour challenge - thankful Sheltering Tree

We have a lovely Autumn toned colour challenge for you this week at Just Add Ink. Perfect to welcome Autumn here in Australia. Not that you'd know it's Autumn yet with the hot days.
The colours suggested a nature theme to me so I thought the beautiful Sheltering Tree stamp set would be perfect. What do you think of what I came up with?
What did I do?  Stamped the tree trunk in baked brown sugar, then the leaves with old olive ink & tangelo twist. I also sponged a little old olive ink over the top to add some softness. Then I mounted the circle panel over the tree panel with dimensionals, & wrapped around some tangelo & mossy meadow ribbons. Some tiny pearls on the tree & sentiment finished off the look for me. Here's a closer look at the tree.
Remember to check out all the different JAI Design Team gals' creations & play along with the challenge too here on the blog. Leave me a comment to let me know what you think about my card or if you have any questions.
Until next time, sending you inky wishes

Wow I really love this image and how you've used the challenge colours to make an Autumn scene.

I'm ashamed to say that my Sheltering Tree set still hasn't seen ink. I think I'm a bit of a collector of all things pretty....

This is the perfect card using these colours Di - you did good! I love the circle showing some white space - lovely card! xox
