One Layer Card with Trees

One Layer Wednesday calls for us to make a card with trees. The rules for Susan's challenge is to use a single piece of cardstock folded in half and use a tree stamp or, if you don't have a tree stamp, a branch or leaves will do. Remember to keep embellishments to a minimum.
I used a GKD stamp from the set "Life is Good" with 2 trees but added a 3rd for better balance. I used the same sentiment stamp from Mark's Finest Papers  that Susan used...did not realize this until I started this post. Love the font of this stamp. Sponged the area beneath the trees to give some depth. Used SU Always Atichoke ink to do all.  It is always hard to try to get the balance right on the one layer card....had to stamp several trials on plain paper before doing on card stock.
