CAS-ual Fridays Challenge: Out on a Limb

 
Here it is CAS-ual Fridays Challenge time again......this week its all about trees!!!
As I took the challenge......."parts" of trees....hehe
 
 
For this challenge, I decided I would use the Pine Sprigs Die from PoppyStamps to create my own festive swag.  I've layered a small stamped folded banner die from Simon Says Stamp over the top and added a coordinating twine bow. 
 
Tip:  Scoring a "frame" around an obvious focal point really adds interest to a layout.  Try it!
 
 
CFC 12.6.13
