Beauty of Friendship - You Inspire Me

 Trees can be inspirational.  As a kid, my sister and I would spend hours lying under our favourite tree to discuss our concerns, plan our career goals, or just examine the structure of the tree and its leaves.

The Beauty of Friendship has stamps featuring two distinct trees.  See my previous post for the smaller of the two trees.

This card has a similar layout to the previous card, but I use different materials to make this card.
The  paper in the background that resembles woo grain is unfortunately retired, but I couldn't resist using it as it is perfect for my card.
The strip of DSP across the bottom is from the Hydrangea Hill DSP pack

The Art Piece:
The structure of the tree is stamped with Early Espresso ink on Basic White card stock.  The canopy of the tree is stamped firsts with Old Olive and then Mossy Meadow.  Again, I used the splotch stamp to provide interest around the tree.  The art piece is matted with Mossy Meadow card stock, and added to the card front using dimensionals.

The sentiment is punched with the Oval of the Dual Oval punch and added to the lower right corner of the art piece.  A bow made using the braided Mossy Meadow trim.
