Sunset Tree

I'm trying a new challenge blog today.  I can't remember whose blog I found them on but I hopped over to Paper Lovin' Gals and saw their photo inpiration.

I knew immediately what I wanted to do.  I made a card once using a cut from Stretch Your Imagination.  I liked it and wanted to use something similar.  The image direct from the cartridge has a wide border and small tree.  I knew if I wanted the sunset to show, I would have to stretch my imagination (lol) and put together other images, weld and cut them to make what I was looking for.  Here is the result.

The card base is cut from kraft cardstock with the dark tree overlay in bitter chocolate.  I watercolored the background on regular cardstock, glued it down behind the opening and added some brown stitching around the edge.  I'm not sure what occasion I will use this for, but it's good for almost anything.
