Good Morning to you!
And Happy December! Hope it's a good one to all of you!

Over at the Clarity blog Challenge there is a new challenge for you to take part in and what a great idea to have this as a challenge in National Tree week.

I always think of the poem by Joyce Kilmer when I think of trees.


I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.

A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast;

A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;

A tree that may in Summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;

Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.

Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.

Just Lovely! 

Anyway for my card I used the Large walnut tree stamp.
I stamped and embossed it in white on black and then black on white. I then mounted these side by side onto silver mirri card.
I stamped a seperate border using the leaf set 4 and the sentiment then attached it all to the front of a card blank.

And here it is! 
Hope that you like it. There are lots of fabulous inspiration over at the challenge blog! I think you should have a look then Have a go!
Happy Crafting!
