Masculine Nature Birthday Tree Greeting Card

I'm still trying to figure out what cards to make for a masculine card exchange, so I'm been playing a bit today with more attempts.  Today's card is a CAS, but uses some of my favorite techniques.
 I used two stamp sets from Stamp Up!  Lovely as a Tree, and Little Hellos. 
 I stamped my tree image in VersaMark and then used chalk to "pop" color onto the image and the Very Vanilla piece that I stamped on.
 I used brown hemp twine and brads as embellishments.
 Paper tearing is the other technique that I used.  I think torn and distressed edges ad dimension to the images.

This card meets the requirements of at least 3 brads for the Birthday Sundaes challenge.

Thanks for looking and for your comments!  Have a wonderful week!
