Leaving Card

Tonight I'm going to a leaving dinner for a friend who is moving to Germany. Wanted something clean and simple (and quick!). Had decided to use the Stampin Up Trendy Trees set as I made some small little ones when I first had the set and liked them. Paired them up with a SU sentiment too which sums up the reason for the card. I couldn't believe it when I saw that Cute Card Thursday had the theme of TREE-mendous! One scary coincidence!

Have teamed up Kraft card with Plum card from SU. Have edged the Kraft with chocolate chip ink and used the choc chip for the stems and sentiment too.

Hope I've managed to hit 'sophisticated and elegant' without being dull and boring!
