Coincidence is....

 God's way of remaining anonymous.
Hello everyone and Happy Thursday to all! My card for today was created for The Project Bin " A Way With Words" & Splitcoaststampers "Way to use it" Challenge.

 On my card I used The Project Bins "A Way With Words" set "Wise Men" and LOVE this sentiment and all the others in this set! To see the entire set, please click HERE!

Today's Splitcoaststampers challenge consist of using a TREE, and I wanted to use this new set as I LOVE all the sentiments in it. I stamped my sentiment in Memento Black ink, and then used a spellbinders die to cut it out. For the coloring on it, I kept the die on top and then airbrushed using copic BG32 , that way the main image was colored to coordinate with my card.

Next I had a piece of a die cut frame laying around on my work station, so I colored it with copic R39 so it too would match up. I layered it on top of a scrap piece of pink card stock, and then used a circle punch to cut all four corners of the pink. Love how you can do that with punches to give your layers a different look

Speaking of layers -
First is my card base 6" x 12", score at 6"
Next is  the blue at 5 3/4" x 5 3/4", then the striped echo park "Sweet Girl" dp, and that was cut at 5 1/2" x 5 1/2". Next layer is a blue card stock at 5" x 5" , then red at 4 3/4" x 4 3/4", and dp at 4 1/2" x 4 1/2". next layer is 4 x 4 , then dp is 3 3/4" x 3 3/4", then add all sewing to all panels.
Main Sentiment panel is 3 3/4" x 2 1/2"

Embellishments would consist of Stickles, gems, sewing, and Really Reasonable Ribbon.
