Stamping for the weekend - monochrome

At last, a challenge card!
I made this for a lady firefighter who adores fire engines. It is also suitable for the monochrome challenge over at Stamping for the Weekend
I folded and cut the card to 7x5.


I used my own photograph, changed to sepia in PSP then cut on the Cricut using a free SVG image by the lovely Penny Duncan
Base card is from PDA and is a kind of beige colour which fitted the bill perfectly for the sepia tones. Tree stamped straight on to base card, SU sentiment punched with SU punches and popped with sticky foam pads. It's really a very simple card :o)
