The Memory Box Challenge for this month is trees, my nephews birthday comes up in January and he just got his first deer on his property the other day so that was my inspiration for this card.
I started out by sponging in the my background, had to have snow as Michigan just had a snowfall on Christmas. Then I used some distress inks in 3 shades of brown and smooshed my woodgrain cardstock, I dried the paper in between adding the inks. I cut the tree dies out from those papers and the deer and owl were cut from scraps of shades of brown cardstock. I glued the trees in the background directly to my paper and then popped up the frame to give it more dimension.
