One Tree

When I saw this sentiment from Create with TLC, I just knew I had to use it and I had the perfect stamps in mind to use!  I chose this gorgeous set of trees from Heartfelt Creations which I think are so elegant looking.  I decided to keep my style simple and aim for a more masculine look.  Here is my finished creation:

card recipe:
"One Tree" sentiment from Create with TLC, HCPC 3432
 "Magnificent Spruce Trees" from Heartfelt Creations,
My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline Dilly Dally, SU Always Artichoke CS, 
Spellbinders die, burlap from The Funkie Junkie and various distress inks

I had so much fun playing with the distress inks for my sky, sponge daubers and the Inkssentials ink blending tool are perfect for applying the inks.  I also used my Tim Holtz ruler to make the faux stitching around the edges.  
I can think of so many different occasions for this card by drawing inspiration from the sentiment for the inside verse:  One prayer, one act of kindness, one kind word...

Thanks for visiting today, I love reading your comments and appreciate all your support!
