CAS Trees Thinking of You for Jim

Our neighbour Jim was taken into hospital last week after having had a heart attack. He is going to need a triple bypass operation. He and his wife Kath are such lovely people, it is so sad. I've made this card for Jim so he knows we're thinking of him and heartily wishing him well.

The card is a standard A6 size made with Old Olive CS. I scalloped the bottom edge and adhered a strip of Choc Chip CS to the bottom. I stamped Funky Forest in Old Olive ink and then added brown trunks and branches by going over them with a Dark Brown Marvy pen. After layering the tree panel on Ruby Red and Pumpkin Pie CS, I added some Choc Chip ribbon tied in a knot. The sentiment was cut out with a Spellbinder's Label Trio die.
