Stamp with Us Theme Challenge

Every Sunday, the girls over at Stamp with Us give a new challenge for everyone to participate in. This weeks is a theme challenge. So I decided to do a child's invitation card.

The card colors are Whisper White, Basic Black, Red Riding Hood and Going Gray.
Inks: Old Olive and Always Artichoke.
Stamp: Lovely As A Tree

I used my Sure Cuts A Lot program incorporated with my Cricut Expressions to cut out this free download from SVG Cuts . Because this is the first time that I have done a layered project, I had trouble sizing my red layer. But as you can see I eventually worked it out. I carefully layered all the pieces to make my vehicle.
I clear embossed with Old Olive the stamp from one of my very favorite sets - Lovely As A Tree, and then over inked with Always Artichoke.

I guess with no work at the moment, I have plenty of time to play. Have a great day or night depends which part of the world you live in.
