Birthday Trees

Hi All,

Sunday evening blues are here in my house tonight! I have managed to get this card together though, I used the sketch over at Mojo Monday.

I wasnt sure it was going to sit together well and the stripy paper is quite bright, but I distress inked the edges of EVERYTHING and it seems to have pulled it together - I do love it when a plan comes together!

You will notice there is no bling on this card, it's going to go on my masculine cards pile so I had set myself a personal challenge of no glitter, pearls or gems and I'm not afraid to say it was hard!!!

Anyway, enough of the blabbering, here's my card:

I've been seeing all these gorgeous creations with twine on them and so so SO wished I had some when I was making this card but sadly I'm (mostly) sticking my rule of no new ribbons / string bits until I can fit what I have into the storage space it's supposed to!! In the mean time, this blue dyed hemp string will just have to do!

You can see the dimensions a bit better in this one...

Ok, I'm off to blog hop for a bit, I hope you like it and enjoy the rest of your weekend.
Thanks for looking and I'd love it if you let me know you visited so I can come and visit you too! xxx
