Color Challenge #30

I loved doing this challenge, these are more like my usual color choices. I have to say, I quite like that quilt set on the bed too! Anyway, I have had lovely as a tree stamp set for a little while now, and no time to use it :( so what better way than to break in a new set than with a color challenge :)
I stamped the trees first with sahara sand, then certainly celery, then old olive to try and create a "Shadow" effect, then to add a little dimension(easier to see IRL) I loaded the stamp with versamark, then old olive and stamped again, then clear embossed. I sponges a little over the mounds and also with sahara sand around the edges, then a little creative tearing, add some ribbon, and there we have it, my submission for this color challenge.
