Another Challenge Card

OK, So I'm a week behind, but at least I'm posting! LOL! I have decided that for my Stampers Club I will feature a festive card (i.e the previous Valentine's card), a 3D item and a birthday card so we can have enough on hand when needed. For this card I chose to use last weeks Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge and made this masculine themed birthday card. I suppose you could send it to a female, but I figure with the trees and the blues and greens it could pass more for one of the guys. I liked this sketch as it gave me a chance to use some of the designer paper from the new Sweet Pea Designer Series paper stack. This is an awesome new product available in the current Occasions Mini catalogue! It has 48 sheets of 12x12" designer series papers that are perfect for your scrapbooks or as accents on your cards. I choose a piece that had the Trendy Trees on it and used it with the Trendy Trees stamp set. I copied the coloring of the trees from the paper onto the main image of the card for continuity. I liked how it turned out, and I must confess this is the first time I've used my Trendy Trees set, and I have had it for a while. I'll definitely be using it again, I like it's simplicity.
So just a quick post for tonight, have an early shift tomorrow morning. I'd love to hear your comments on this card, so feel free to leave a comment.

Until then...

Happy Stampin'
