SOS #471 - Make Mine a Tall One

 This title explains my card for today which I'm taking along to Shopping Our Stash for their current challenge which as always encourages the use of items already in the stash to make cards for their various themes. You may have guessed that the theme is **a tall slim card**.  I've been digging deep for this one and the tree stamp used dates back to 2009 from Elusive Images which is now known as Chocolate Baroque although I don't know if the set is still available. I produced the background piece using a geli plate and some Distress Ink pads which I've had for more years than I care to count - most of them still work too which is great. The sentiment stamp is not quite that old but, again I've had this set for a few years, also still going strong even though it was a freebie given with a magazine.. Why not go 'shopping your stash' - you could get a nice surprise at what you unearth 😉

  7. What a lovely card. I've had my gelli plate out this week too, but made something altogether different from a card. Love your soft background and the striking tree on top. Brilliant! xxx
