Be Yourself

Hello.  Welcome.  Over at PaperArtsy Jo Firth Young made a cute tree.  I decided to make a card and also combine this with the Stampotique Designers Challenge Sentimental.  It goes like this....

I stamped a load of flower /leaf elements using stamps from PaperArtsy JM34 and EDY06.  The flowers are painted using Fresco Finsh Pansy with a hint of Limelight.  All the other elements were stamped on DCWV printed papers.  Then I totally forgot about taking photos!  Sorreeee....

I cut a tree from crunchy wax paper using Sizzix Tree 3D pop up.  I stuck the stamped elements onto it.  I've used a painty background from the stash and realised I should have stuck my tree the other way!!  So the whole thing fell over and became a branch.  I stuck the flowers down the LHS and scribbled a sentiment I saw the other day on a metal sign in a gift shop.  So now it's not a card.   Well, maybe a giant postcard.  Or one of those humorous but slightly embarrassing signs you find in bathrooms.  Like 'Gentlemen please stand closer, it may not be as big as you think' or 'Ladies, please remain seated for the whole of the performance'  That sort of thing.
