Live Simply

     I was messing around and cut a tree out with my Sizzix.  I really liked it and hoped a challenge would come around to inspire me to do something with it! I added tick marks around the tree to highlight it.

  5. WONDERFUL card. I just love it! I'm gonna use the idea of the has marks, not just stitching marks, next time I'm layering tone-on-tone. Thanks for the inspiration.
