CAS-ual Fridays #82: Even the Score

It's CAS-ual Fridays time! 

We have a super fun challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays this week...
Even the Score...create a CAS project using creative scoring!
The winner will receive a prize from this week's sponsor, Scor Pal!

I immediately thought of making a Christmas tree for this one! 
That seems to be a recurring trend, maybe because I didn't put up a tree this year? Doh! 
I'd like to say I just scored some random lines and made a perfect tree the first time! 

That didn't happen!
I tried several different times on white, even colored some lines with green chalk, then tried a couple of times on green cardstock, but I could not get lines I was satisfied with. Grrrr.

I finally gave up and drew some lines in pencil on one side of the cardstock, then scored over the pencil lines. I didn't use a ruler (like my normal OCD self would do), because I wanted it to look more natural. I even thought to take a picture of it before attaching it to the card front. Score! 
(See what I did there?!)

Head over to the CAS-ual Fridays blog to check out the other amazing scored cards by the Girl Fridays and to play along with us! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

Angie, you scored a tree! Love it! Why is it that random lines take so many tries? It's great that you shared that. And I laughed at your pun at the end, clever girl.
