This is for FS293 and Tricia aka T.Joy is our featured artist today. I was inspired by Tricia's clean and simple Masculine Birthday Card found here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...;ppuser=102572 I loved the clean and simple card with the focus on the tree and sentiment. I kep the same layout and scored lines as well as using a sentiment layer and tree embellishment. I changed the sentiment, color combination and used a die cut branch and leaves in place of the tree on Tricia's card. This is about as clean and simple as it gets but I love the simplicity of the colorful branch of leaves. If you would like to know how I created the colorful leaves check out my Simple Pleasures blog post here: http://kittiekraft.typepad.com/kitti...pleasures.html
