One of a Kind Festival of Trees

This week at SUO challenges, the challenge is to be geometrical!!  So, I thought maybe my triangles would fit with this challenge.  You need to CLICK here to see the fantastic geometric designs from the design team at SUO - truly inspiring!!

I have used my NEW stamp set Festival of Trees (sneak peek from our Holiday Catalogue starting next week) and the coordinating punch for this clean and simple card.  For the background trees I've chopped off the trunks, and left the complete tree for my "one of a kind tree" .

I've also used the colours from the challenge at Just Add Ink this week (and check out their fabulous ideas too HERE) .  Basically I used these colours because then I didn't have to think about it too much!!!  The colours are 

and they worked pretty well really!!  The next test for my card will be when I give this to my darling on Father's Day.
