Color Throwdown Challenge #158

Hi everyone.  I'm back today with my card for the Color Throwdown (CTD158).  Broni is our hostess today and she chose a perfect palette for the masculine card I needed to make!  Check it out:
I realized recently that CAS is my friend when my mojo is on vacay.  I think I may have left it on the cruise I took in August...not exactly sure, but it's M.I.A!  So, today I used my new digital stamp set at MTME, Happy Hallows.  I layered the solid, abstract circle in a pale gray (80% transparent), the plaid in Peach Parfait (also 80% transparent), then layered my open faced leaves at full opacity in Island Indigo.  The trunk of my tree is Basic Gray.  I inserted my tree "photo" into a Word document, added the "happy" sentiment, and printed. 
I recolored the multi-striped paper from my Shutt-erfly collection to match this week's palette, layered my white, embossed 'birthday' sentiment from So Sentimental, stitched on some peach colored buttons, and layered it on gray cs.  That was it...all finished.  Almost too simple (in execution and appearance)...but the recipient won't mind.  It's going to a teenage boy ;]  LOL

Dang, Kristin. I really NEED to come see you so you can teach me how to create such tech-y goodness! Awesome card - would be great for a guy, too. (Those are hard!)

I love your sweet masculine card, Kristin. That tree is just awesome. I would give anything to be able to do what you can with all your digi design work!

Hi, I came here following a link on where she used your digi papers for paper piecing and was sad to find that the media fire download doesn't work. Loved the brown paper. Ps really like the tree here too! Hugs from Australia xx
