warm winter wishes

No, it's not snowing here (yet), but I wanted to play with this fun tree some more! This time I took some white liquid applique to add snow to the branches and ground and then added the cute little bird (he's a cardinal this time) to the branch. I actually stamped the 'warm wishes' directly to the white cardstock, but didn't see some applique and stamped on the applique - OOPS! So I remembered I saw this card by CassieT over at Splitcoaststampers and thought it was so cute - so this is what covers my big boo boo. I'm thinking that maybe I should have stamped the tree directly to my Four Seasons paper instead of the white cardstock so it would look like it was snowing, but I didn't want to start over. I still think it's a cute card, so I'll keep it (well, I'll send it out to someone...) The button is threaded with a think piece of Bashful Blue cardstock.

Ok, that's it! Thanks so much for stopping by.
