Penny Black Tree Stamp.. card for a man

 Just a quick pop in to show you a couple of cards I made with my Penny Black Tree stamp.. the one which was out of stock everywhere for ages (and now I know why, as its such a beautiful design!).
Its hard to make a thank you card for a man without it being 'fussy' so I went for a nature theme..

I used TH distress ink in Corduroy Brown and a distressing tool and a sponge dauber (which gives a slightly different effect), as well as brown Stazon ink to stamp the tree, because the memento wasnt dark enough.

The white blossom (spring = cherry blossom trees?) was polar white flower soft and then I tried a pink one for a more feminine touch. Have to say I love the pink one!
The cutting dies are Spellbinders Fleur de Lys and a bit of card candy added too.
