SHOPPING OUR STASH #275 - Three Trees

Hiya friends and welcome! We've got a new challenge starting today at SHOPPING OUR STASH, one that is pretty self explanatory and can be interpreted many different ways: THREE TREES! We would like to see a minimum of three tree images on your card or project! Pretty simple, eh? Here is what I came up with:

 Here is a very bad, washed out picture of the inside of my card:

Someday, I'm going to learn how to take decent pictures of my cards. The day I took this was not that day. Sigh. Anyhoo, I used an older freebie digi image from The Alley Way Stamps, I just printed it out side by side twice. I gave myself a brake and just colored the images without trying to add dimension, or shading, or highlights. (And apparently nor a shadow to ground them) But I like how it turned out. I used some gold glitter paper and a scallop punch to frame the trees, and adhered to my embossed card front. The inside was stamped in gold ink, and I edged the panel with the gold also. IRL it looks much better and brighter. ☺

I hope you get some time to join our Three Trees challenge at Shopping Our Stash! We'd love to see your take on it. For more inspiration, do check out the blogs of my teammates, and our Guest Designer, Gina!

Just a reminder: We are looking for Guest Designers! If you wish to be considered, simply add a "DT" after your name when you link up! Good luck and happy crafting!

I have to say, I am not a huge EF user, but your background looks cool-- I noticed it right off the bat, and it reminds me of wreaths. Nice!
