Spring Birthday Tree

Hi, I've made another card using the Memory Box Arboscello tree die. Last time it was an autumn birthday tree, so I thought I'd do a spring version.

I'm linking up to these challenges:

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge where the theme is botanical.

Less is More where you need to include a diecut on your project. I've used 3 dies.

Addicted to Stamps & More where the theme is anything goes.

I diecut the flowers from snippets of  pink parchment paper, so I'm visiting the playground at 
Pixie's Crafty Workshop. One of the things I love about dies is that you can often cut images from scraps that would otherwise be tossed out. My pile of snippets is constantly growing!

Materials used:
Memory Box arboscello tree, floral delight and label dies; distressed stripes embossing folder; distress reinkers and nib; stickles; sentiment sticker.

Thanks for visiting,
Hope you have a happy week,
Cathy x
