Autumn tree birthday

I needed to make a birthday card for a friend of mine and wanted to go with a fall theme since their birthday is in the fall. I really love the tree image from Sweet N Sassy stamps Forest Silhouettes set. I love making winter scenes with it but this time I thought I would try to make it into a fall tree. To my delight it worked! Take a look

I stamped the image with memento rich cocoa and then used my copics to make dots for the "leaves". I sponged olive ink for the grass and sky ink around the image while still in the nesties.

Here is a close up and you can see the sparkle in the cryogen white paper

stamps- Sweet N Sassy stamps Forest Silhouettes
paper- Paper Temptress cryogen white, basic grey mellow dp
accessories- Spellbinders fancy tags, oval and labels nesties, copics (YR23, YR14, R24, YG93), green twill, pearls, cuttlebug vintage dies, paper piercer, sewing machine

Thanks for visiting. I hope you will stop back soon as I will have some nice blog candy for you in celebration of my birthday!
