Gingerloft - Plant a Tree

Time for another challenge at Gingerloft! This week our theme is Plant a Tree and I've used the pretty Flowering tree image.

I've added touches of colour to the image with whispers pens, and die cut it with nesties deckled rectangles. The edges are inked with Pumice Stone distress ink. The paper is from the Papermania coutnry companions set. I've used a cuttlebug embossing folder on the green card, and one of the nesties fancy tags. MS leaf frond punch, woodware scalloped circle punch, and greeting stamp from personal impressions. The ribbon, gems and glitter are from stash.
