Merry Monday...Peace on Earth

Merry Monday Peeps!!!

Today Lesley has a very fun and simple sketch for us:

Well, even if I say simple, I did have a bit of trouble with this one, I wasn't sure what to do with it. I had just gotten me a few new Memory Box dies and this "Twiggy Tree" was perfect.
I die cut the tree three times with night of navy card stock and layered them together. The little red birds are a PTI die.

The base of the card is Night of Navy card stock and then the next layer is whisper white card stock. 
The sentiment is from the Stampin Up Greetings of the Season stamp set.
Very simple and easily mailed. Not much bulk with this one! 
Be sure and hop over to Lesley's Blog to check out what the rest of the Merry Makers did with this fabulous sketch!

Thanks for stopping by today!
