Merry Monday ~ Non Evergreen Trees

The new Merry Monday Challenge asks us to use a Non Evergreen tree for our Christmas card.  I have the Impression Obsession dies of the birch trees...YEAH!
I started out with some Distress inks sponged on the paper:  peacock feathers at the bottom of the card, then worked up to dusty concord and finally some Colorbox Sky Gray pigment ink.  I used a little Gathered Twig on the birch trees.
The little deer is also a trio from Impression obsession.
(the hoof prints are from PTI In the Meadow)
The falling snow was made using irRESISTible pico embellisher.

  5. Clearly, you and I were on the same page. Laughted out loud when I saw your card after I posted mine at Merry Monday. Like yours a whole lot better than mine, though. Love the layers and softness you've created.
