My Card for Sketch Challenge #8

I know - I know....

it's taken me forever to get my card done for this sketch! So I'm going to treat you to 2 - yes TWO - tree cards!

The first one I found while "blurfing". I found THIS CARD on Angela's blog - what a cool idea to do with paint chips! It suited my "tree challenge" perfectly and so I wanted to share it with you.
I also have a ton of paint chips leftover from a kids' class so I'll be CASING this card for sure!

Now on to the second card - my card - you could probably guess what the inspiration was.
Yes it was my ribbon bit jar. I thought I'd grab a few "greeny" pieces and make a tree.
I added some brown wooden buttons for embellishments and it's done. So easy!!

The ribbon is from a SU! sampler I bought last year and the paper is from my 6x6 Basic Grey Figgy paper pack.
So now that my card is done I can start NAGGING you get your card in!

What are you waiting for????

You only have until this Friday NOON PST! Don't miss out on the blog candy!!!
