Birch Tree Sympathy

Good morning! So, this last Sunday we went to my parents for Super Bowl. I've never been into football - at ALL, because I had NO idea how the game worked. My hubby did some explaining that afternoon before the game, so I actually found that I enjoyed it - finally knowing what was going on! But...I also stamped several images and brought them with my Copic markers so I could play and do a little coloring as well!  ((((smiles)))

Here is one of the results, and the finished card I made with it:

I had that image sitting on my desk when I saw the current Cure for the Sunday Blues Challenge - and knew I had to finish it up to go along with the challenge! I know I didn't use hearts, but the lines of the trees match the falling hearts, the wood floor was a perfect fit with the kraft card base, and the entire color scheme seemed perfect:

I used the birch tree image from the Unity December Kit of the Month, and my sentiment is from Avery Elle's Oh Happy Day stamp set, stamped once in black, then offset once in MFT kraft ink. I die cut the panel with Avery Elle's Finished Frames ELLE-ments die set, then wrapped several twists of gold thread around and tied in a bow before attaching to my card base.

It took some work to make it show in a picture, but I also covered the trees with Wink of Stella - so sparkly and pretty! This picture shows it probably best:

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!


  1. I love that birch tree image, such a peaceful serene card, love this!

  4. These trees... they seem to dance!! Just magical! Love the touches of colour here and there, such a little detail but adds so much! Thanks so much for playing to find a Cure For The Monday Blues!
