Windy Tree

Hello everyone!! OMG!! Life sure does get crazy!!!! My cousin and his wife were here visiting for a few days so we ate out for lunch and supper everyday...I feel myself growing by the minute!!! I guess I better eat rabbit food for a few days (maybe weeks) so I can get back into my clothes. It's amazing how the weight just sneaks up on me so all of a sudden I'm carrying around 10 extra pounds...couldn't be all that chocolate I eat....nope...can't be that!!!! Anyway.....

I made a card with the cute little Taylored Expressions Windy Tree die and sentiment...I just love this little tree!! I cut one out of chocolate chip card stock and one out of garden green. The leaves on the brown tree were cut off and it was adhered over the green tree so just the green leaves showed. 

 The background papers were from Simple Stories A Charmed Life 6x6 paper pad and the background layers were cut with the Taylored Expressions Label Stacklets 8 dies. The corners were cut on the same angle as the diecut and the sewing, sequins, and twine finish it off. 

Thanks for stopping by today....have a wonderful day!!!!
