Lovely as a Tree Reflection technique

I made this card using an old Stampin Up set Lovely as a tree - ( it has been around a long time) and used the reflection technique to make the trees look like they are being reflected in the water.  I also dug out my really old Judi Kins color dusters - brushed with wood handles and long soft bristles and just brushed the color background.

Trio of Retired Stampin Up Long Notes

I found a pack of now retired Stampin Up "Long Notes" and made this set of cards.  There are long envelopes that fit perfectly.  This is a good way to use up Designer series paper.  The tag is from the retired Two Tags die.  Now I need to finish the rest of the pack of long notes.
