ChristmasBirchTrees-1


I created a little winter scene with Perfectly Plaid Chill for the background and white die cut birch trees.  I added a little bit of Glitter Snow to the trees for texture and a little red die cut bird.  The plaid panel is layered over a Blue Jay zig-zag rectangle panel which I mounted to a card base white woodgrain embossed cardstock with a few pearl watercolor splatters. The sentiment is white embossed and die cut using the Happy Happy Happy Add-on set and a fancy folded banner die cut from Narwhal cardstock.
