Leafy Trees, please...

I've loved leafy trees since I was a child (didn't we all?).... this Leafy Tree from SNB is no exception.... isn't it just the cutest we birdie nesting in the branches!

Ingredients: Cardstock - Terra Nova, Cre8tiv; Striped Paper - a magazine freebie; Stardust Pens - Sakura; Ribbon - Dotty Craft.

The image is coloured with Stardust pens and an Aquash water pen - just love the watercolour effects! After matting the image, it was attached to another double matt - after I added some ribbon detail!  Being a bit sneaky here, and not wanting to waste ribbon hidden between the layers, and behind the layers, I have only used small pieces instead.  I wanted the bow to fill some of the white space on the top layer, so I simply tied a bow, and adhered it to the top layer - in line with the ribbon of course!

I wanted it to be a bright funky kinda card, so I used way-out striped paper - which reminds me of the striped hard rock candy Dad use dto bring us from his weeks away in the army....they were soooo sweet! 

This card is also entered in the challenge at Creative Inspirations - #100 Stripes.
Thanks for peepin'!
