Rustic Pine Cone

Edited - Can you see my counter...it is creeping ever so close to 50,000 hits!!! I can hardly belive it! I was kinda hoping it would wait until after Christmas but it is what it is!! So, I think I am going to have to round up a bit of candy to give away once it hits 50,000!!! Stay tuned so you know when to comment to be in the draw!!! This pine cone comes from the Papertrey Ink set called First Fruits. I have enjoyed a few images from that set but I haven't used this pine cone yet. I love it!! The card is simple, I stamped the pine cone and needles (they are seperate stamps). Then, I did some tearing. I love that look when I see it on other's cards ... but usually I never think of doing it myself. But I did here, a double layer... the white and the brown. I added the sentiment in the space left by the tearing, love that look!! A bit of brown hemp and some dimensionals and you get a pretty simple and masculine card. Supplies: First Fruits; Beyond Basic Backgrounds (Papertrey Ink); Ink - Chocolate Chip, Garden Green (Stampin' Up!); Paper - Whisper White, Chocolate Chip (Stampin' Up!); Other - dimensionals, brown hemp. Enjoy your day!! Donelda

I love this card, the tearing is so great. Everytime I try that it does not turn out the way I had hoped.
The simplicity of the image and sentiment is perfect. Love, love, love it.

Wonderful CAS and perfect masculine card -- my DH would approve of the nature theme and absence of frilly fibers!
