One-Layer Wednesday 68

The challenge at Simplicity this week is to make a one-layer card using a triangle, or implied triangle, as en element in your design.  I immediately thought of Christmas trees as triangles. 

I used this beautiful Hero Arts branch and flourish tree stamped in pearlescent ivy.  I love the shimmer to this ink.  I blinged it up and rounded the corners and called it good.  The lighting was bad this morning, and when I tried to brighten the card the colors washed out a bit.  It's a deep, beautiful green on cream cardstock.



I'm not quite as happy with this card, but thought I'd share it anyway.  I masked and stamped the trees in Memento bamboo leaves and then added a beautiful Hero Arts sentiment in rhubarb stalk.

I absolutely adore the first card - the tree is so pretty and the colour you've used it just fabulous! I sort of know what you mean about the second card - although it's fab too!

I love both of these! I was thinking a Christmas tree would be perfect for this challenge but hadn't been able to get near my stamps yet. Hmm! Maybe I could CASE one of these?
