Trendy Trees

Okay, this is another one of those cards that I am more proud of than I really should be! I'm thrilled because this is my own design - a rare thing for me. I did get the idea of matting the stamped image from Susan (LOVE her cards!). I see now that I missed the idea of popping the mat up on dimensionals - oh well, next time! I'm also pleased because the card took me less than 15 minutes to come up with and put together - another rare thing for me! Plus it is a masculine card (no easy feat) AND both my Chocolate Chip and Sahara Sand card stock were scraps - the Sahara Sand piece already had the circle cut out! I'm a little disappointed that I don't have a bigger "Happy Birthday" stamp for a masculine card and that I smudged the "H" slightly. Oh well, at least my brother-in-law will know that it is hand made!

Thanks for looking,
