Country Scene

On Jay Gee's Nook there is a challenge that is always pretty interesting but I rarely get a chance to actually play.  So I made an effort this week to get a card made and actually uploaded in time!!  Challenge #13 is to use a holiday stamp to create a non-holiday card!  Sheesh, that was hard!!  But here is my end result ... a fun Country Scene!!

Lots of Christmas trees (from Made of Snow - Papertrey Ink)... but on a bright sunny day, they just look like good old pine trees.  Here is a side photo of some of the dimension ...



And see those polka dots on the clouds ... they are actually the 3 buttons from the snowman repeatedly stamped (from same set).   Sentiment is from Round and Round (anniversary set- Papertrey Ink).  All papers are BasicGrey ...yummy!!

Off to see what others did...
Thanks for dropping by for a little visit!! Come again some time :-)

Donelda, this is perfect! I love the color scheme and how you've layered the trees. I have been struggling to wrap my noggin around this challenge! :D

I like this twist on the usual "make a Christmas card with non-festive stamps". I love the cute trees and the polka-dot clouds!
