DYSU? Challenge #97

Good Morning All,
Time again for another challenge over at Do You Stack Up? and this week our theme is LEAVES AND TREES - so we want to see all of your gorgeous takes on leafy/tree designs.

and our generous sponsors for this challenge are........

Hope Jacare - Choice of 3 digital images

Pink Cat Studio - Choice of 5 digital images

Tiddly Inks - $12 Gift Certificate

As I really enjoyed making a CAS card last week for my Guest Designer spot at In The Pink, I thought I would make another one for my DYSU? inspiration card this week. This gorgeous image is from Pink Cat Studio and is called "Love Birds on Swing". The actual word "love" has been added by me in my graphics program before printing the image. A simple black mat with a punched border, a red ribbon and heart shaped gem completes the card - really simple!!!

Close up of the adorable Love Birds.

Card - The Papermill
Border Punch - Martha Stewart
Ribbon and gem - stash

So that's my take on a leafy/tree design - I'm looking forward to seeing yours. The rest of the DYSU DT have created some gorgeous cards for your further inspiration so do take a look and leave them some love.
Hugs and Happy Crafting
