Less is More - colour of your eyes

Well I'm glad to see the back of last week! Mum is doing fine and luckily has no lasting ill effects from the mini-stroke. She now has medication which will hopefully prevent any further problems. It's lovely having her here as I never get to see enough of her usually but gosh it does eat into your crafting time lol My youngest sister and niece came visiting today too so didn't have a minute until after a late dinner.

Anyway onto LIM and oh heck who thought this one up!!! My eyes are hazel coloured and the only thought I've had so far is a tree! 

I had downloaded this tree from Cuddly Buddly before the visitors arrived and managed to get it printed out onto pearlised card stock. Tonight I coloured it with brown and green promarkers, stamped a sentiment in versacolour sepia brown and added some browny/green gems. Not sure I like the finished card though, it seems to lack something!

Challenges entered:
Less is More - colour of your eyes
Simon says Stamp - anything goes
