Cloud Tree

Good morning to you ...
And Happy Birthday to my brother Rick!

Today is City Crafter Challenge day ... and this week we have Charlene hosting for us with a super challenge ... 

Char is asking that we Use the colours from the inspirations photo


... And ... Include a Tree

I actually didn't have any stamps or dies for a tree ... well, I did have a teeny tiny stamp ... but my brain would not come up with an idea to accommodate the stamp ... Then I started to play about with bits on my desk and an idea formed ...


A cloud tree!
I had a few sheets of paper that reflected those lovely autumnal colours so I just cut some cloud shapes with a PTI die and some leaves with a punch


The cloud shapes are layered up with little foam squares for dimension ... I cut 
a trunk cut from a scrap of brown CS and the leaves are randomly stuck down ... You can see a paper border there too and a computer generated sentiment


I gotta say this was probably the quickest card I ever made!

Please take a moment to visit the Blog to see the rest of the projects ... We really hope you will join us this week too ...

Have a beautiful day

Oh, this is a very creative interpretation of a tree: love the idea to use the cloud-shape for the crown of the tree and the way you used this green punched stripe as grass - very clever!
Hugs,
Uli
