Here's a couple cards that are a bit more my style---bright, fun, make-you-smile cards!
I made the tree from a journaling card "bubble" (K & Co.) and then a hand-cut little trunk from some brown polka dot patterned paper (K & Co.). Then I used some (Lasting Impressions) brads to add some "fruitiness" to the tree along with a die cut bird (K & Co.). Blue paper from Imaginisce, Cloud Paper from Echo Park, Kraft Cardstock (Paper Trey Ink), Bling (My Minds Eye), Happy Birthday Stamp (Target Dollar Bin)
I fussy-cut those cute little flowers!
All paper from K & Co. except cloud paper (Echo Park)
Small cloud die (Paper Trey Ink)
