Simple Tree

Hello again ladies...and gents... Here I am with another challenge at Our Creative Corner!  This week, our challenge is hosted by the lovely Lori Rider at the Diva Stamper.  Your challenge this week is to create a clean and simple card incorporating a tree or branching.  I really like making this type of card, they take me a while, but I really like the results! 
So here is my creation, it does have lots of fussy cutting, but the over all card is simple.  
To carry off the whole wood, branch theme, I use the PTI wood grain embossing plate on the card front behind the tree image.  I really love how this card came out!
Now go check out the other members of the OCC design team to get inspired to create your submission!

Gorgeous! I really like the embossed woodgrain behind the main image and the paper pieced leaves are terrific. Love the staples too! Great job on the CAS challenge. Hope you are having a nice weekend.

Hugs,
