Thank you card

Those of you who know where we live - there are trees everywhere!  As lovely as they are to look at, maintenance can be a bit of a pain.  We had a few that were leaning in towards our house and one leaning right over our shop.  A friend of ours works for a tree trimming company and offered to come out and take out the trees that were "threats"  
This poor guy spent all day in trees, cutting out limbs and cutting entire trees down.  By the end of the day, he didn't want to walk any further than he needed to.  It was absolutely amazing to watch the process and how he made it look so simple.

I knew we wanted to thank him for what he did but let's be honest - it's so much easier to make a card for a girl and add some gems and faux stitching.  And a lot of the card ideas I come across, just don't seem fitting for a guy who works closely with a chainsaw all day.  

Little did I know what a challenge it would be to me to not add that many accents to a card.  haha.  
Challenge excepted!

I used the trace tool in silhouette after finding a royalty free clip art image of a tree trimmer and got to work.  here is the final product.  he even called to thank us for the thank you card because he liked it so much!

~ Enjoy~
