At the time I viewed the sketch, I also saw an image on Pinterest and thought it was a perfect idea to fit the challenge. Somehow what I wanted to try just didn’t work, although I’m not giving up, and will try again another time. In the meantime I really wanted to enter the challenge and I’m needing Xmas cards so this is what I came up with. Using the birch die I cut 3 of them using Metallic gold paper from Recollections. I also cut a small panel from Reminisce PP to go behind the trees. To get this looking how I thought it should I cut one of the tree pieces in half. Laying the pieces onto the pp I moved them around until sure they would fit then I glued them and cut off the excess. I added this layer to the card front and then using an Essentials die I cut the greeting from off white cs. I had the little plaid bird leftover from another project and he seemed to fit onto this card.
We had planned on going for a walk, but the heavens have opened up and the rain is pouring down, so the idea is scrapped until it eases. The rain suits my mood today. I’m feeling a bit down due to lack of sleep and the loss of a good friend earlier in the week. Her death wasn’t a surprise as she had been battling cancer for a number of years, but it is always hard to lose someone we care for. I am glad she isn’t suffering anymore as I know the last few months were not pleasant.
