Playing in Paradise #80

It is time for a new challenge for Playing in Paradise , I am your hostess this week. If you follow my blog on a regular basic you know that I like earth tones colours  - creams, browns and such. I am more comfortable with masculine cards than girly. Maybe it is because I was a tomboy growing up and my roots are those of a small town girl.

This week I chose a Back to Nature theme for the challenge, this picture makes me want to take a walk, or a hike, maybe even do a little fishing. Some of my fondest memories are fishing with my parents in a creek in the middle of nowhere.

I love 6x6 paper pads, never mind that I own tons of them they are the first thing I look for when I look at craft supplies.  I love these Designer Papers from Kaiser Craft, when I saw this pad online at Scrapbooker's Paradise it was a must have.

Can you hear the forest and nature sounds..? I created a simple card with panels, the stamps are from Flourishes (check the Scrapbooker's Paradise online store, they do carry a selection from this stamp company).

Supplies: Kraft and brown cardstock, Designer Paper-Canvas Corp, Flourishes.

The Playing in Paradise challenge team has created some fabulous samples for inspiration, please stop by and take a peak, comments are always welcome.
