Distressed Paper Tree

This is my last card for today! I have seen alot of paper flowers about and I think they are so fab so I thought I would have a go but they were a bit too big for flowers so I turned them into a tree! The base of the card is Imaginisce, I cut it down to 6x6" and I have put a slightly smaller heavy weight cream card inside as it was a bit flimsy so now it has some support! I have embellished the bottom of the card with some self adhesive lace ribbon that I had in my craft stash and then topped that with a sort of ric rak scallop ribbon! I have attached 2 tiny charms to the card using american crafts ribbon. The toadstool charm I have recently bought from ebay and the leaf is from a bracelet that I have pulled apart as it had so many cute bits on it!!! The tress trunk is cut from SYI but I have chopped away until I had the shape I was after! The main body of the tree was really fun to do, I just cut up co ordinating circles form scraps of paper ( Clare Curd, DCWV & Bo Bunny ) you then scrumple them up and rip them until they look like they are ready for the bin, then unsrew them and ink them up ( good for rage ) I loved that will be doing it again after a bad day!!! Finally I have cut a sun using Doodle Charms fron DCWV card from the blossoms and butterflies stack!!!
