This card arose from playing with the Marks Finest Papers Tree Greeting stamp set I won on their blog hop.  The tree stamp was coloured with Marvy Markers and lightly spritz with water.  The background paper is Kaisercraft from their Timeless Classics paper pad. The purple paper is from Basic Grey and was punched with X-cuts Border Sparkler. The sentiment is from Crafty Secrets and cut with an Mpress die.  The chipie bird is kaisercraft and swiped roughly with Stampin Up's basic grey ink.  The purple Bazzil and unknown white card were cut with the Spellbinders circles. The ribbon I'm not sure of the source (other than my jar of orange ribbons).
