Caardvarks - Trees Please!

The Caardvarks challenge this week is to make a Tree themed card. Taylored Expressions is sponsoring the challenge and you could win the new Branching Out stamp set! If you haven't seen it - it's SUPER CUTE! Go take a peek!

Anyway, here's my card....the stamp is called Kissable Tree and it's by Cornish Heritage Farms. I bought it when it was the stamp of the month (I think). I then "kissed" it against the Unity Worn Grid background. I blinged it out with pink and purple crystals. Some sparkly cardstock from an Apron Strings Designs kit and a cute little sentiment - "wishing you carefree days" and I called it done! I kept wanting to add ribbon, but it just wasn't working for me. So I left it as is - and most of us know that's usually harder than not.

So - this is actually a One Challenge Card - which is most unusual for me! Oh well...I do like it and think I could send it to anybody for just one of those "HI" cards that people used to send more often than they do now. Now, you would usually get a text, nevermind a full email! LOL

As always, I would like to thank you for taking time out of your day to stop by my blog! :)
