Clean & Simple Trio of Trees



Here's one of the new Taylored Expressions sets called Walk in the Park...how cute is that tree image? I went for the clean & simple look to showcase this darling tree and couldn't decide on a color combination from the coordinating paper, so I went with three color combos:)



The tree trunk is not colored in simply because I didn't have a light enough Copic to use...but I think it totally works this way with just the leaves colored in! And who doesn't love a splash of buttons?



The bottom edge of the patterned paper was punched with a scallop punch and the corners of the white panel were rounded at the top for added style and interest. To finish it off, ribbon was wrapped around near the bottom of each white image panel and a sentiment-stamped tage was tucked under each bow.



Since I couldn't decide on which color I liked the best, I want to know which know which one you fancy. Thanks for stopping by!

Stacey picking a favourite colour seems a bigger challenge than making the cards at this stage as they all look terrific, I think if I must choose then I would have to go for the lemon...always refreshing and I can feel my mouth watering now,

Thanks for sharing these and must say I love that stamp
