#6 Challenge Joan's Garden

This is the 6th challenge at Joan's Garden. This week the challenge is to create an outdoors scene and make it a Birthday Card. We had a beautiful winter day here in Minnesota. The sun was out and it was almost 30 degrees. We have alot of snow and it would be a perfect day to cross country ski. I often do it around our property but I have a bum knee right now. Hope everyone is enjoying this winter and here's my card:

I put a Pine Tree folder through my Big Shot and then swiped it with Green dye ink at the top and Brown dye ink at the bottom.  It was layered to a larger Brown panel and brads were attatched at the top. For You (Impression Obsession) was stamped in Green dye ink on a white word punch. It was all layered to another embossed folder with Pine Branch (Impression Obsession die)  and Crisp Bows in Red (Memory Box). All was layered to a larger Green card. The bottom layer is a Cover-A-Card Pine Branches (Impression Obsession) stamped in Green and then layered to a folded White card.
Happy Winter.

Paula I LOVE your card. I just love how you colored the embossing folder, the results are just stunning. Can't wait to try this technique with an EF I have of grasses and a little bird. Thank you for the inspiration!

Paula, I love how you thought everything out on this card. You put so much work into it, but you made it flow so beautifully and effortlessly. Your use of blending inks is really creative, and since I have a lot to learn, this idea is going into my mental file for use later. Great card!
