The Pine Stays Green in Winter...

 Welcome back crafty friends!

Today begins a new challenge at the Double D Challenge Blog.  Our theme for the first half of November is, "Pine Trees and/or Pine Cones".  Perfect for this time of year when weather is colder and the holidays are closing in rapidly.

Cottage Cutz Pine Spray

A mood board full of inspiration...

Here's my Pine Cone/Pine Tree inspiration...


I was inspired by the soft turquoise hues of the water along with the browns and greens of the pine cones and branches.  

The fun background die is a purchase I made earlier this fall, but hadn't had the opportunity to use until now.  It's perfect for this time of year and color a s'more!  And the name of this die cut is "Graham Cracker"!

The dimensional pine cones are covered with crystal glitter and topped with berries and a bow.  I cut the sentiment twice using different colors and stacked it for dimension.

How pretty. I love all the texture, from the background to the greeting. Really gives the whole card dimension. And that gorgeous bow is the perfect final touch, especially when it's that color. Just beautiful.
