Wishing You a Happy Birthday - Crazy 4 Challenges #78

[Just a heads up that I've updated my Stamps For Sale page HERE, and I'll be adding more in the next couple of weeks. Thanks for looking!]

It's Crazy 4 Challenges time! Today's challenge is brought to us by the fabulous Silke Ledlow and today she's challenging us to use a tree on our cards or project today in honor of International Earth Day.

I decided to go CAS with this card. I love the primitive look of this tree image from PTI's Through the Trees.

First I rounded the corners of my card base and stamped the sentiment, from the same set. Then I stamped the tree with Ripe Avocado and Dark Chocolate inks and matted it with Ripe Avocado and Hawaiian Shores card stock. Finally, I finished it off with some Hawaiin Shores 1/2" satin ribbon. 

Okey dokey, that's it for me! Sooooo, NOW, be sure to check out the samples by the rest of my crazy, I mean the Crazy 4 Challenges team ;-)
THEN, you know what to do--we'd love to have you come along and play with us. Just do your thing with the challenge and link it to Mr. Linky on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Please link directly to your project. And, if you upload to a public gallery, please use the key word C4C78.

Thanks so much for dropping in today!
