And All The Trees Of The Fields Shall Clap Their Hands

Going through my scraps,
I found this negative of the tree die I cut to make this card, and thought it would be ideal to use for another masculine card. This is how it turned out...


Sometimes it pays to save
those bits you think you may not use, as they may end up being your vocal point. I again have here those two Basic Grey papers I've used so much of lately... from the Oxford Collection - "Sorority" and "Lacrosse". The cardstock is American Crafts Pine, Core'dinations Leapfrog and Sandtrap. Gathered Twigs Distress Ink was sponged on the edges after roughing them up with the Tim Holtz Paper Distresser. The brad is from Teresa Collins Christmas Home.


The gears are Tim Holtz Sprocket
Gears teamed with his Long Fasteners. The branch was cut from kraft cardstock and Tim's Alterations Tattered Pinecone die. My sentiment is an old set from Sweet'n Sassy on a die cut with Spellbinder's Labels Seventeen. I'm entering this card in these challenges:
Scrapbook Sisters - Anything Goes



And now Grandma would like
to show you how our newest is growing... what a blessing from the Lord!
Thanks for stopping by, friends!
