OCC Branch Out

It's time for another challenge at Our Creative Corner! Our host this week, Lori Rider, has challenged us to make a clean and simple card incorporating a tree.

For my card, I took a dark grey cardstock panel, and freehand painted the white trees with acrylic paint. It was a quick and easy way to get a nice bold image. The red birds were added next- I cut them from red cardstock, then heat embossed the sentiment. The final touch comes from the red embroidery floss- you know how much I love it!

Thanks for checking it out, and I hope you join us this week at Our Creative Corner!
