Spring Tree

It was craft night last night, and after our tea and home made rhubarb and orange cake we made tree cards decorated with buttons and bling.
I
I used an Indigo Blu stamp called Lollipop Tree which I stamped with Walnut Stain and Shabby Shutters Distress Ink.  I did a bit of inking with Tumbled Glass and more Shabby Shutters, using some torn paper as a mask for the ground.  I created a mat to go under the topper, using more masking and Distress Ink, to extend the scene.  I decorated the tree with buttons, dew drops, pearls and gems and added a little bird cut with a Marianne die.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
