Trendy trees is one of my favorite stamp sets ever. My post the other day about using smaller stamps with the summer smooches paper turned on a lightbulb in my head and made me run for Trendy trees to do the same thing. I messed it up just a little bit (hence I had to cut my green tree to fit over my patterned square) but sometimes you just have to improvise and go with it. This is one of those cards that I got frustrated with and left overnight before throwing it out. When I went back up the next night, I decided that it was still cute and not deserving of the trash bin. How could I throw out those cute little trees????
