PC2 - Winter Tree


Time for the second Pinspired challenge! I was thrilled to see that my card from the first challenge was chosen as one of the top 3; I'm so proud to be a Pinpal!

Here's the inspiration for this challenge:




This one's right up my alley! I went with the winter theme and focused on the simple shapes and the colours . This is a Simon Says Stamp exclusive Memory Box tree die that came too late for 2012 Christmas cards, but I'm predicting it will be a favourite in 2013!

PS - I'm LOVING this Avery Elle Fog cardstock - the perfect shade of grey - finally!
