Vintage Tree

Happy Friday! Here is a card I made yesterday for Hip Hop Thursday at the Unity forums. The challenge was to make a card with stripes. If you look very closely, you'll see I used some striped designer paper from CTMH.

This card is also for the OCC challenge this week to use a "vintage glow" on our creations.

The tree was colored with Koh-i-noor pencils, cut out and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. There is sponging on all the layers.

Stamps: tree - Giggle Grove, branch - Gratitude = Joy, all from Unity.
Paper: Whisper White, Creamy Caramel, Basic Black and DP from CTMH
Ink: Creamy Caramel, So Saffron, Chocolate Chip, Black Stazon
