Copper tree


 I'm guess I'm not really sure why but it seems like this time of year I go through a lot of sympathy cards. So this is actually one that I did for a friend who lost his wife. Sometimes I struggle on what kind of a card to make for a man, but I think this tree works out nicely. I did it within the challenge colors and I layered it on brown and then a coppery , peachy, gray figured paper wrapped it in a peach and white ribbon.  Then on cream colored paper I stamped my tree in a copper brown and then added three copper studs along the side.  This card features two of the things that I like to use most out of my favorites – pile is the string and the studs. with the paper choices in the stamp choice it's a rather vintage card to me as well.
