CC224: Friend Tree

Today's SCS Color Challenge was to use Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango, and Summer Sun. It took me quite a lot of time, not to mention paper, to come up with a final outcome. However, I kind of like it.
The card measures 4.25 x 5.5"and is mounted on white cardstock. After the base, there is a layer of Pacific Point, and then a layer of SU! Jersey Shore DSP. I used SU! Brilliant Blue for the sentiment, from SU!'s Great Friend set. I stamped it and then punched it out with the Curly Label punch. The layers behind it were cut freehand. The inner panel is a layer of Pacific Point, a layer of white, and a layer of Jersey Shore. The ribbon goes under the inner panel. There is also a strip between the white and the sentiment.
The tree was an afterthought. I actually created a separate card, with the tree to the left and a whole lotta white space to the right. It felt really off balance, but I had worked hard on that tree. So, I cut it out and made it the focal piece of a new card. The tree is from SU!'s Season of Friendship set. I stamped the tree in Chocolate Chip and the leaves in Summer Sun. I paper pieced some of the leaves for more dimension.

Pretty cool card, friend. Maybe I should do this color challenge--I have not used ONE piece of Pacific Point. Ever.
