Tree- mendous

My Graphico have a theme challenge and a sketch challenge every week, which effectively means they offer a challenge choice to everyone to join in with one or both, depending on your time and inclination.
I used their lovely tree freebie images to join in this week with their Challenge #41 - In Threes.
I opened the trees in PSP (Paint Shop Pro) played with the sizes and then printed them off along with a computer generated sentiment, before cutting around the lot with scalloped scissors. 

There was a small strip of spotty paper in my scrap box which provided a nice backdrop and this was matted onto yellow card.  The green card was embossed on the cuttlebug with swiss dots and then matted onto another piece of yellow.  A small yellow bow is the perfect embellishment for the scalloped oval greeting.
Once again I find myself eligible for more than one challenge ...
The fresh spring colours allow me a second entry to Rosie_D's Challenge #67 - Yellow, Green and White and also to join in at Charisma Cardz #12- Spring.
Rainbow Lady's current challenge asks "In my garden I see ..."   - trees and birds are both visible in mine, (although admittedly they don't look like these ones), but then again, she never asked for real life ones so reckon I'm pretty safe and Pixie Cottage Challenge 12 is to use circles - there are plenty of them here with the globe trees, the spotty paper and the swiss dots.
Hope you all enjoy a wonderful weekend ... oh and remember we "Spring  Forward" an hour on Saturday night/Sunday morning if you're in UK!
