Simply Betty Stamps - On The Third Day Of Christmas...

My Betty gave to me...a twisted crooked tree!!!  Our assignment was to create a card that utilized a twisted tree.  So I mixed and matched my trees for just the look I needed. 
I used the twisted tree image from Tiddly Inks as well as an old SU! hostess set to create my trees.  I kept my colors a bit muted so that the main tree would really stand out.  

I added another panel on the right hand side with a scrap of dictionary paper that seriously just happened to have the area that uses the reference to "bark" up the wrong tree!!  Totally not on purpose!  LOL!! 

I edge distressed most of the panels with Tim Holtz Tea Dye ink.  I added a strip of ribbon and three brads and popped it up on foam adhesive as I did the big tree. 

I hope you enjoy and have been inspired.  Please come play along at the SBSC blog!!!
