Steve's Birthday

In case you haven't guessed, March is a big month for birthdays in my family. In fact, I have three more coming up later this month!
This particular card is for my oldest brother Steve. His birthday was actually on the 7th but I'm just getting to posting now. As usual coming up with ideas for men's cards is a challenge and if memory serves, his card last year was in the same colors but in a golf theme. Not very original, I know.
Anyway, since this To the Nines Specialty DSP, is so nice for masculine cards, I kind of made it do all the work. Combined with a lot of layering and a few punches, the paper does it all.
The tree is stamped with Always Artichoke on Sahara Sand and then I hand sketched over the trunk and limbs with my Chocolate Chip marker.
Otherwise, it's pretty simple.

Thanks for popping in!
