Playing in Paradise #80 - Back to Nature

Ah, happy Friday! This week Nina is our hostess, and she's challenging us to go Back to Nature - here's what she has to say about it:
     It seems that every weekend there are so many people that head out to go camping, hiking, fishing  or even to the beach, a few may simply enjoy gardening. Summer to me means a tons of outdoor time and enjoying what mother nature has to offer. So the theme for my challenge is Back to Nature. Interpretation is in your hands :)

PPC 80

I am in serious need of some masculine cards for my stash, so I decided to use a timeless image from Stampin' Up:
Supplies: kraft cardstock;
paper from Basic Grey "Little Black Dress;"
tree stamp from Stampin' Up;
Vintage Photo distress ink;
sentiment from Digital Princess;
Hemp twine from Dee at the Farmer's Market;
wood button from Michaels
Something about kraft paper evokes a 'natural' feeling for me - so it seemed a 'natural' choice here :)

How would you like to go back to nature? This theme is really a terrifically versatile one, so I hope you can find time to play along with us (there's always a great prize up for grabs!). The linky is open until noon on Thursday, August 23 (holy moly, it's almost the end of August!).

Don't forget to see what the rest of the team has been up to:
