Joan's Gardens Challenge #36

Always a pleasure playing the challenges at Joan's Gardens!
She & Selma come up with such fabulous challenge themes and this week is no exception.
Here's what our theme is this time around . . .
  • Create a Winter Scene
  • Use a Stamp
  • Use a Die
  • Use at least one Tree
How much fun is this!  I really enjoy 'making a scene' (on cards only that is!  LOL) so I couldn't wait to get started and here's what I came up with.

Here is what I used to create this scene:
(items identified in Bold Red were purchased at Joan's Gardens)
Paper:  Christmas Green cardstock, White cardstock
Inks:  Tim Holtz 'Tumbled Glass', 'Brushed Corduroy', Momento 'Bamboo Leaves'
Stamps:  Heartfelt Creations HCPC3432 Magnificent Spruce Trees
Accessories:  Eclipse Masking medium, PoppyStamps #827 'Picket Fence' die, Gold & Red Stickles, Quickie Glue, Deco Art Glamour Dust, large sponge dauber

Please be sure to pop over and check out Joan's Gardens!  She has a huge array of products and her weekly challenges are always a great time.  Joan also has another challenge going on today in honor of World Card Making Day ... you'll want to be sure to check that out too!    In fact, I'm headed back to my crafting table to make a few creations to participate in that challenge too.  Guess I'd better get hopping!!

But, before I go, here are a few other challenges I'd like to enter this card into:
Craftymess  Challenge #19 - Anything Goes 
Pixie Dust Studio - Anything Goes

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
