One More For Today

Three posts in one day...on a roll.  : )  Actually, this last card was pretty quick to put together.  The Our Creative Corner challenge this week is "branch out"...use a tree image and keep it clean and simple.  I love this tree image and used copper EP, cut it out with Spellbinders Mega Curved Rectanble die.  I also went straight to this Tim Holtz embossing folder and mooshed a piece cut from a cereal box through it. I edged the "bark" with a copper DecoColor marker.

Nancy, you are such a clever girl! I love how you used a cereal box and ran it through the embossing folder! And I agree! The tree is beautiful! Thanks for playing in our challenge over @ OCC. And I'm happy to see your work again! Beautiful job!

Terrific idea to use the woodgrain embossing for a background for the tree stamp and how green you are, using a cereal box for chipboard - very clever. So happy you joined in the fun with us this week at Our Creative Corner.
