Little tree (bonsai?) cards

Have I ever mentioned that I LOVE this stamp set? Thought so. 

These are all 9cm square and made using colours from the Earth Elements® family. I embellished each one with a piece of Hodgepodge Hardware®, some piercing and distressing. They’re still very simple but those trees are just so fabulous that they’ll make any card look good! Have I ever mentioned that I love those trees?

Stamps: Lovely as a Tree (p45)
Cardstock: More Mustard, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Ruby Red, Garden Green, Whisper White, Very Vanilla
Ink: Always Artichoke, Old Olive
Accessories: Hodgepodge Hardware® - Pewter, Crafters’ Toolkit
