"P" is for Ponderosa Pine

I came across a new challenge that seems like fun and is really a little bit of a challenge.  It's over at Pile It On.  Every Sunday they post a challenge.  But the REAL challenge is to find as many other challenges to enter as you can.   Pile It On's challenge on Sunday was to create something with a "P".   For this card I created, P is for Pine Trees.

New England Ivy and Olive are usually my 'go to' green inks but this time I pulled out my Ponderosa Pine.  This ia a color I rarely use but I really do like it!  I used 2nd generation stamping on some of the trees.



I wanted my card to be pretty clean and simple but it still needed a little shimmer.   (We all could use a little shimmer these days)  So I added some Bronze Glitz Glitter Gel to the 1st generation trees.  I matted my sentiment with Bronze Glitter Paper and added Mocha Opaque Gems for a finishing touch.
