The die cut tree and stars

I feel in love with this adorable die cut tree from Simon Says and so I found a great way to use it on a card.
 The CAS(e) this sketch for this week was just the idea I needed. I also used a Paper Smooches banner die for my little banner with it's stamped sentiment. 
 I love the look of using the negative of a cut so that was what I went for with my tree and this sketch.  I just backed the cut out tree with a piece of patterned paper and to make it even more interesting, I used the extra leaves dies and cut some out in a couple colors.  Those were added with some foam tape.
 Here is the CAS(e) this sketch.
 I also wanted to use the Freshly Made sketch and this little combo of products made it so easy.
 The patterned paper is Echo Park. I used a little calendar accent piece from Elle's Studio.  It has the empty place along the bottom edge so I stamped a sentiment using a new set of alphabet stamps from Hero Arts.
Here is the Freshly Made sketch.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
