Another simple tree card

for the Caardvark's "tree" challenge.

The trees are drawn free-hand. I first attached iron on fusible web to the back of some fabric samples from a home decorating sample book I purchased awhile back from a store that was going out of business.
I drew the tree outlines on the back, cut them out and attached them, with the tree trunk, to cardstock and then added some stitching. The "lawn" is also fabric.
I like the colors of the trees and the overall color combination, but looking at it now it looks... blah....boring. I think I needed to add some add'l buttons or maybe some little flowers...or something...to the trees.
Oh well...thanks for looking!
