Kiwi Tree

This 5.5 x 5.5 Kiwi kiss and black card was made for today's SCS sketch challenge. I like this card so much I will probably make a boxed set of them. I had no idea if I would be able to make this layout work , its a little out of my "zone" I even avoided it by cleaning the garage first.......I guess a clean garage was the inspiration I needed. Can you believe how beautiful this tree from forest friends is in fine black glitter?
This beautiful brad from K and company is wrapped around black and basic gray ribbon from Stampin'Up!

Inside the card is a Happy greeting from the happy everything stamp set made by Stampin'Up!
I stamped the background with baroque in craft ink and embossed with black powder.
I used heat and stick powder to adhere black glitter to the tree.photo corner punched pieces of patterned paper to dress up the black square.A pre-made die cut was placed behind my tree on dimensionals for a little extra texture.
What its made of:
Stamps, baroque, Forest friends{inside} happy everything
paper, kiwi kiss, black, very vanilla, patterned paper K and company
brad,rhinestones, die cut all k and co. heat and stick powder, onyx glitter, craft black ink, blk embossing powder, ribbon basic gray and black, all Stampin'Up!
