I love this Spruce Tree, from the Timeless Britain collection. It doesn't have to always be green, though! On this card, I stamped it in Versamark ink, covered it in clear embossing powder, and heat embossed it. Clear embossing powder is a great way to give a tone-on-tome look and provide textural interest to a card.
I wanted the main image panel to have a bit more warmth, so I sponged on Frayed Burlap ink and then added a bit of Tea Dye ink directly from the ink pad. To finish off the card I added a small ribbon tab (great way to use small scraps of leftover ribbon) and some bling.
I love how quickly this card came together - those are my favorite kind!
