SPCC#11 .....hello tree

Happy Sunday friends! I had a flash last night that the SPCC challenge #11 colors were perfect for a tree! I had to give this challenge a second shot since I had this idea burning a hole in my pocket and hey....did you all know the prize is copics this week? That is SO exciting to me so I decided to run with my idea number 2!
the challenge:

my project:

Sorry about the dark picture, it's night time and I usually use the daylight hours for photography. Anywhoo, I used some great stamps from My Cute Stamps called Spunky Nature for stamping the little sprouts along the bottom and for stamping the leaves on the lighter circles in the tree. The darkest green circles (with polka dots) are a DCWV DP. I stamped and circle punched the pieces that form the leafy tree and the trunk has been handcut and randomly folded and inked to simulate wood grain. More green galore colored accents were added in the form of buttons, flower sequins and ribbon.

This seems like a fun card just for saying hi to a friend so I grabbed this hello stamp from the Papertrey Friends til the end set, stamped and popped it up on foam dots. A little swiss dots cuttlebug also fit well here....but then, if it's up to me, Swiss Dots fits EVERYWHERE! ;)

Thanks for coming by today. I hope you had a great weekend. I sure did!

Supplies:
Paper: Georgia Pacific, Stampin Up! DCWV
Stamps: My Cute Stamps, Papertrey Ink
Ink: Stampin Up!
Embosser: Cuttlebug
