Sympathy Card-BBTB2

Hi my crafty friends, it is Monday and you know what that means. Yep it is time for another BBTB2 challenge! WooHoo!!  I so love these challenges! Our sweet and very talented design team sister Jayne asked us to use a tree.  Any tree you want from any cart you want and any project you want.  Well that leaves it wide open to get crafty doesn't it?!  Since we just had a family member lose her mother I decided to make a sympathy card. I saw this card on Pinterest and it was made by Amie, the Redheaded Crafter, so this is not my design, but I loved it. Of course I think the Amy's card is much better than mine, she had a little bird sitting in her tree. lol I used Graphically Speaking for my tree, Elegant Edges for my scallop circle and good ole George and Basic Shapes for my circle.  For the inside of my card I just used a SU scallop and circle punch along with the SU bird punch.  My inside sentiments is also from an SU stamp set and my outside sentiment is a Paper Trey Ink stamp set. I also used my Cuttlebug with the swiss dots embossing folder and a SU wood embossing folder. I hope you go check out my very talented design team sisters to see what they have in store for you.  I know you will be inspired by them as I always am.  And while you are at it, join in with us on this challenge!  Just make sure you follow our few simple rules and get linked up.  You have one week to link up with BBTB2.  And one last thing, please consider disabling word verification.  It is extemely hard to read the letters and numbers.  We will try but if we can't get through the first or second time we move on and I would hate for you not to get any comments because of word verification.  Ok go get your craft on!!!
