'Out of the Box'
Well...I was all out of ideas, until I went and browsed the images from our sponsor for this challenge...Some Odd Girl...I have printer issues using digi images...it leaves grey smudges over the card, and then the ink smudges when I try to colour, so I print all my digis out when I'm visiting my parents...but I really wanted to use one of the Some Odd Girl images on my card...so, thinking 'outside of the box', I decided to have a go at printing the image directly on to patterned papers...and it worked! I printed the tree several times on to different papers (from the 'Ooh La La (for Him)' collection by My Mind's Eye), then cut around the trunk and branches to mix and match the patterns .
I decided to make a tent card...placing one of the trees inside the aperture, on the circle of paper cut from the front of the card. The sentiment is from the 'Anytime Messages' set by Hero Arts, and I added a little bird stamped using a stamp from the 'Sending Sunshine' set by Simon Says Stamp.
Here's a side view, so that you can see the dimension:
