Chevron Forest

You may have noticed that I don't use a lot of blue blue in my cards.  So I was quite beside myself when my kid sis gave me this chevron trees paper that I really really really like.  What to do, what to do?  I know you know what I'm talking about.

I love how this card turned out.  Can you see the subtle evergreen (blue)  forest in the background (perfect for the Pacific NW)?  Then you have the close up of the bird on the limb with just a touch of ice/snow.  Wintery nature at its stylized best.  I'll definitely be adding this to my collection of cards (I'm thinking my BIL's birthday in January--shh).

The Details:
Memory Box Woodland Branch die, Marianne Designs Fence, Bird & House dies, Stickles, glossy accents (as glue), foam dots, mystery PP and dark blue card stock from my old stash.

I'm entering this in the CASology Country, The Male Room #7 Nature, and Less is More #142 Trees challenges.

Update:  also entering this in the Papertake Weekly Challenge Oh Christmas Tree.
