Happy Birthday Circle Tree

Here is a card I made with this GREAT tree image form Unity Stamps.  I got it from my Secret Sister (Hi Banu!!) in a swap we were in.  Isn't it the best tree image!! 

I stared out by stamping the plaid using Background Basics: Retro (Papertrey Ink).  Then, I inked up the tree using my SU! markers.  When I stamped them on you could still see the white lines.  The look is so cool!!  I added the sentiment the same set (A Little Buggy, Unity Stamps)), very funky and goes perfectly with that tree.  I did add the word 'birthday' from a Papertrey Ink set (Birthday Basics). 

One little note....see the base of the tree...there is a bit of a shadow.  It grounds the tree.  When I pushed the stamps out of the full sheet they came on, there was lots of "left over" waste rubber that was attached to the foam mounting.  I couldn't just throw it out so I made a "shadow" stamp with it!! 

Thanks for dropping into my little piece of the blogging world!!
