Male Birthday

Hello All !!,
Yes I am still here, but with an absent creative mojo and other problems, I've not been able to make anything for a while. However, it's my Step Dad's and Sisters birthday this week, so I've had to come up with something for them.

For my SD Dave's card, I've combined 2 challenges.

The first is Simply Stampin where they had this sketch

and ColourQ where they had this colour palette

 This is the card I made

I coloured the tree with SU write markers which took some time to do, so I had to huff and puff on the stamp to moisten the ink again before stamping on to white card.                                                        I used a border punch on the edges of the layered cards, and on a strip of brown underneath the tree that was raised on 3D pads. I also added green ribbon either side of the brown card.

Recipe :
Card = Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Daffodil Delight, and white square card FMS
Stamp = Leaves of a Tree, and Basic Phrases
Inks = Chocolate Chip, Pear Pizzazz, and Adirondack Butterscotch ( the nearest I have to Mustard ) 
Tools = Martha Stewart punch
Extras = Ribbon

Thanks for dropping by today, and I'll show you the card for my Sister tomorrow if you'd like to come back then.

Bye for now
