Quite a lovely tree

Today is day three of my VSN challenges from last weekend! I think I have seven days' worth in all, so we're not quite half way there. Love was the theme for this round, and Christy S.'s challenge centered around her favorite move, "The Princess Bride." She asked us to take inspiration from a quote in the movie. Coincidentally, I had just watched this movie the weekend before. For my card, I was inspired by this line from Westley when he and Buttercup entered the fire swamp:"Well, I'm not saying I'd like to build a summer home here, but the trees are actually quite lovely."
I used my Unity tree stamp to come up with a tree worthy of the fire swamp. The color combo was inspired by these buttons from my stash, which I threaded with hemp twine and then attached with glue dots.
Stamps: Unity, SU All Holidays
Ink: Always artichoke
Paper: always artichoke, basic gray, sage shadow, neenah classic crest white
Accessories: hodgepodge hardware, ribbon, twine, cuttlebug, ticket corner punch, buttons
