#tgifc160 Inspiration Challenge

Good Morning Everyone!

The current challenge on the TGIF Challenges Blog is an Inspiration Challenge. This time the Inspiration is All About Wood. What does that mean to me? I need to incorporate WOOD

somewhere on my card. As it happens I have a card that I created while trying to come up with a One Sheet Wonder set. My card for #tgif160 uses the Pinewood Planks dynamic embossing folder and a tree image from the Rooted in Nature stamp set. My card also uses several new products that will be available starting June 2, 2018. I am in love with the Nature's Poem Designer series paper. The color scheme that was used to create it is gorgeous. While my card today uses one of the more traditional patterns I picked up a few colors from it and used them.
