Week 198 Theme

We thought we would continue with a theme this week which would allow you to continue  increasing your stack of Christmas  cards... if you choose to take a seasonal take on the challenge, although it's not necessary.
So today we would like to see
MORE THAN ONE TREE
That should give you plenty of scope!
Remember to keep it clean and simple... a few cards seem to creep into our challenges which stray from our prime directive; one layer cards are ALWAYS welcome although not essential unless it's the second Saturday of the month!
Here are our examples, although as ever we've all prepared extra cards for you to see on our personal blogs, so do be sure to try to check them out!
THANK YOU!

 Perfect challenge for me, I love tree stamps!
Waltzing Mouse Flurries trees and snowflakes with a Lawn Fawn sentiment, some gems and ric-rac.


I imagine that some of you might have come to expect something a little like this from me with a topic like this. 
The stars (SU Gorgeous Grunge splats) were clear embossed and then the snow hills were inked with Distress inks using sponge daubers over a torn piece of Post it  used as a mask.
The stitched dies are from Lawn Fawn and the sentiment was computer generated in All things Pink font.

Using Clearly Besotted: Joy to the World set I've used 
silver and green inks with additional stamping for shadows
to create a snowy forest scene. 
I've used a sizzix embossing folder of mini dots to give the impression of snow, 
snow mounds die cut using Mama Elephant: Landscape trio dies,
Sentiment is CBS: Signature Christmas
and to finish some gems to the trees from my stash.
