Well Connie Jo is out of commission for awhile...something about a knee ;). Because she photographs her card against her favorite tree, I thought that I would honor her with a tree. And wood texture. And another tree...
Stamped the tree from Branch out in Basic Brown, then the leaves in Memento Bamboo Leaves & Cottage Ivy and SU Green Galore. Sponged with green Galore. Cut a strip of brown ruched paper and partially matted with Garden Green. Ran brown CS through the TH EF that had been inked with Close to Cocoa (it gave a pretty cool 2 toned look IRL). Mounted all on a PTI cream card and added the nailheads and Sizzix Originals leaves. PT - 2 I used Roxie's wonderful sketch for my layout.
Feel better, Connie! Hope that your rehab is quick and that you are back to yourself again soon :)
Thank you so much for looking. Have a peaceful day.

Looks as if you and Phyllis ran with a similar idea - it was a great one. I love your tree and wood texture, along with the real tree in your photo. Just as well you don't have to send that along with the card!!
