H2H, week 7 Everything grows

The Heart 2 Heart Challenge this week is a color challenge.  We have to use these three colors on a project: Ocean, Topiary, and Desert Sand.

 Tricky colors to pull together, but here is my project. 

Everything except the button is Close To My Heart.  I used the Everything Grows stamp set to make this card for my brother and sister-in-law.  They just found out that the baby they are expecting is a boy so these colors work perfectly for them.  I had already stamped all my Ocean hearts when I decided to go hunt for some embellishments.  It turns out that in my giant stash of buttons, I had one Ocean button, that just happens to have 2 little hearts for holes.  How perfect!

I free-handed the Topiary cardstock for behind the tree.  I then layered some stamped Topiary circles and Ocean hearts on top of the cardstock.  The tree trunk was stamped in Desert Sand.  
Here is a close up of the top of the tree.  I apologize that it is a little blurry.   

This will actually be my last Heart 2 Heart Challenge post for a while.  On next Monday, the movers finally arrive!  It will be several weeks before we get moved, have our stuff delivered and am ready to craft again. 
I may post a few other things I am making this week as I have to get finished up with some things before we move. 
Thanks for looking!
