Tall Trees for Merry Monday

We're in the second week of this


Here's our challenge...


I liked this challenge so well, I made another card.

I used some Brusho background pieces to die cut 
Frantic Stampers Tall Trees.

Popped them over an piece embossed with Christmas sayings,
added a little red bird and twine and it was finished.

What a lovely Christmas card this is. That's a lovely embossing folder and I really like your trees. The brushos green looks lovely and the little bird sitting on the S looks really cute.

We don't have Cardinals in the UK. I was really excited to see one in a friends garden in Canada a few years ago. Barbxx

Beautiful card Bonnie, I love the texture of the EF, you just reminded me I have a similar one that I think I will use to CASE your card. The Cardinal and those pretty pines are just the perfect pop of color in your sweet Winter scene.
Thank you for sharing.

I love those little trees, Bonnie, and they are magnificent popped up on that embossed background. Adding the cardinal was just the perfect touch.

This is very nice! Those word backgrounds always leave me stumped but now I see how they make a nice subtle background that doesn't distract from the loveliness up front!
