Christmas Wisdom Tree

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog today.
I am sitting here typing this post and it's a sunny and warm day here in Pittsburgh. Seems so unusual for the 10th day of October to have 80° temps. Our zinnias and some other flowers are still blooming profusely.
My hubby thought he lost the zinnias last month when we had 10" of rain over a weekend. But they came back and are as healthy as ever. They make great cut flowers and looks so pretty in my house.
We still have butterflies and bees flitting around the garden. The butterflies are usually gone by this time of year. I love these temps and soon (this weekend) they will be more seasonal like.
Now for my card for today. This one I created for the DTGD challenges on Splitcoaststampers. They are a series of week long challenges for the members of the fan club on Splitcoaststampers.
We aren't supposed to reveal the details of the challenge. But, if you are a fan club member click here and you will see how this fits the challenge that Linda hosted.
For my card, I used the CottageCutz "wisdom tree" die. I cut it in lost lagoon cardstock 2x for a little more dimension.

The background designer paper is from the Stampin'-Up "all is calm" collection. I added some mesh ribbon and sequins to finish off my card.
That's it for me for this post. I am off to the Farm Market to pick up some things for tonight's dinner. So until next time...…..God bless.
card details:
Paper: lost lagoon, white, all is calm dsp (Stampin'-Up)
