Birthday Trees

As many of you know, I followed Christine Middlecamp's doily project and fell in love with all her wonderful detailed and layered creations.  After she finished with the doily project, she went on to share many great scrapbook pages.  One one of them, she created these great "circle trees".  I knew I had to recreate them on a card.

Other than the card base, this card is made out of scraps from my various bins (large, med, small, designer paper, etc.).  The trees were so much fun to create.  2 different sized circles, both sponged and the middle circle popped up on dimensionals.   I created the funky sun to go with the trees.  I punched a circle and then cut various widths and lengths of the same yellow designer paper to add to the back for the rays.  While I'm not often caught using more than 3 colors, I went all out and used a totaly of 6 colors on this card!!  Yeah!!! 

Thanks for dropping in to my sunny crafting world.  It is nice to be blogging again, even if it is a slow start up!!
