OWH Sketch Challenge #118

Here's the Sunday sketch#118  from the Stars and Stamps blog this week.

And here is my quick card I made using the sketch. I used SU! trendy trees for this one pairing it with some Echo Park dsp along with some chocolate chip and PTI new leaf card stock. I punched the edges with an EK dotted scallop punch and just had to add a row of those cute trees from the dsp pack. I added a little piercing around the image panel and this one was done. Sorry for the wonky colors, but whenever I have to use a lightbox to photograph something with green color, it seems to put a green cast over everything & I haven't figured out how to eliminate it yet :)
Have a great Sunday, and thanks for stopping by!

Super card! This is a great balance of the green background and splash of color across the bottom which really makes the focal point pop. Very, very nice!

Great card, Carol! Your piercing looks super. You've used some pretty paper and I love the row of colorful trees at the bottom.
