A trendy tree in my urban garden!

I have a couple of challenge cards I want to share with you, it was my intention to combine the color and sketch challenge from SCS but the challenge colors were kiwi kiss, tangerine tango, and riding hood red. I needed a fathers day card and I attempted to make a masculine card, however my mind kept drifting toward flowers....so flowers it is. I used the stylized flowers embossing folder for my main panel. I cut two papers from a sizzix envelope die and glued them together to achieve the look I wanted. I cut out a couple of sizzix leaf shapes, and a few tangerine flowers from a cuttlebug die. I place little red rhinestones in the centers of the flowers and scalloped the edge of the envelope. It was a fast card to make ...really it took longer to talk about than it did to make :)
This is the sketch today at SCS, its very "user friendly". I started with a basic gray card, and layered urban garden DSP from Stampin' Up! I stitched around all the edges, and taped down a strip of taffeta ribbon in basic gray, the stamp is from trendy trees and the button was in my box of many buttons. This will be one of the Fathers day cards I send out...hmm I wonder who I will give it to??

A wonderful card to make for all my fabulous gardener friends. I think the sissix envelope gives the appearance of a colorful window box!
Thanks for sharing.
