Casing Patsy Collins

Tree Thank You

Edited to correct the name of the cardmaker. My apologies to Patsy Collins who is the creator of the lovely cards that inspired mine.

I have a card for you today inspired by card pinned on my Handmade Cards board. Usually I browse those cards and get a few ideas. This time I pretty much copied the card. I loved the combination of colour, text and tree image which Patsy Collins used in her cards.

I stamped the letter background first, then brayered and sponged the colours before adding the tree. Thanks Patsy for the inspiration.
