Sympathy Tree

I am trying a new challenge site that I first noticed through my friend Vicki's blog and have since seen several of my friends playing at Simplicity in Susan's One Layer Wednesday's challenges. The challenge is to only use one layer which is your card base and this week, a tree image. This is definitely not me, but I loved it ... I had the card finished in a minute. I had a piece of the Stampin' Up crumb cake already cut to an A2 size laying on my table from my previous project and I knew that I wanted to use the tree from SU's set Thoughts and Prayers. I stamped it with Versafine Vintage Sepia, sponged and then stamped the sentiment from the same set. I think that this is one of my new challenges every week, yeah! So if you have a minute and this is new to you also, stop by and play along. And don't forget to visit Vicki and check out her blog...beautiful things.
Need to get back to stamping and I need to take some pics.... I have a Christmas card to show you later. Not quite as quick but still pretty simple.
See ya,
