Enjoy the Simple Things!

When I was making my circle swing cards last week, I was left with this half circle of green patterened paper.  It reminded me of a hill, so the idea for this card came to mind.  It's an A2 size card, and I used the Imagine Best Friends cartridge to make the cloud patterned paper.

This adorable tree with swing is from the Cricut Just Because Cards cartridge.  It's cut at 8" (not real size of course).  I ran the green layer through my Cuttlebug with the Polka Dots embossing folder.

I thought that this sentiment from My Creative Time's This & That stamp set was just perfect for a tree with a swing!
