{ Caardvarks: Trees A Crowd }

My first Caardvarks challenge starts today!!!

The challenge: create a *NEW* Tree-themed card. Challenge ends at midnight on April 30th. Post a link to your creation at Caardvarks blog.

The prize: this adorable stamp set, Branching Out!
For my card I used Butterfly Tree, Small Ebroidered Butterfly and sentiment from Impression Obsession. They are brand new from the 2009 Summer Supplement. I stamped a separate image and cut three butterflies out to add to the tree for dimension. I did add a little glitter to the dimensional butterflies. They are colored with watercolor pencils.

For more Tree-themed inspiration you have to head to Caardvarks and see the rest of the amazing creations from our design team.

We're celebrating May Day weekend, May 1-3rd, by spotlighting our readers. We'll showcase reader cards and projects all weekend long. Think of it as a great big show -n- tell event to thank you, our readers, for your support and participation for the past two years. Your submissions will be published at Caardvarks! You can read about the details ------> HERE.
