I used Beate's weekly sketch #48 for this layout. I decided before making the card that I was going to use masculine colors and a masculine theme as I always tend to make girlie cards - sounds a lot easier than what it was. I had to refrain several times from adding bling and flowers to it and well, I suppose it's OK....I can't say I am thrilled with it. The 3D tree I added last as it needed a little something....and I think that's my favorite part of the card...LOL. For the tree, I used Floral (see i did get a flower like thing in!) Paper leaves I had in a bucket I found the other day.
