Lovely as a Tree General Card

Okay, I confess.  A couple of days ago I used the large single tree from the "Lovely as a Tree" set and I did not put the set away.  I was glad I hadn't because I was thinking of Christmas cards and I thought it might be fun to make a winter solstice card.  I know, here in Minnesota it's very unlikely to have green grass in the winter!!!  I wasn't thinking when I was picking out the colors.  The grass is green and the sky is blue! I learned that as a kid!! LOL  I used Coastal Cabana for the sky.  I think Soft Sky may have been the way to go to give that look of winter.  And I would probably not do anything on the ground.  Or maybe some ultra fine white sparkly glitter!  I'm not a big fan of glitter but I will use it if I think it will greatly improve the look of the card of give the illusion I'm trying to go for! 

After making this card I think I may pass on using this set for our Christmas card.  I like how this card turned out but I don't think I want to make it our Christmas card.

This is a super easy and very fun card to make!  

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

Oh yes, this card is beautiful. I don't know what we will ever do when this stamp set retires. I thought Gently Falling would have taken its place, but I guess not, as that one only lasted a couple of years.
