T is for Trees

T is for Trees!  Trees have always amazed me.  They stand so tall and can resist the wind because of their roots, which you can not see.
This past November, we took a road trip and on the road trip we stopped at the Muir Woods.  There was a trail that you followed that took you through these amazing redwoods.

Trees are beautiful and my card today is a reflection of their seasonal changes.
The card base is created from Whip Cream Cardstock and then a slightly smaller piece of Pool Play cardstock.  On a strip of Whip Cream cardstock, measuring 5 1/2 x 2 1/4, I stamped the four trees everywhere from the Nature Trees set in Dark Roast ink.
I then took the circle stamp from the same set and stamped the colors to the trees.  I stamped two trees with Limeade Splash, one with full color and one stamped off first.  I then stamped one tree with Orange Creamcicle and the last with Beach Breeze ink.
I then added seasonal touches to the trees.  On the first tree I added Journey Sequins-Pink World for Spring.  I added some Gold silk to the autumn tree.  Lastly, I added Journey Sparkle Cuts to the winter tree.
I die cut a piece of Beach Breeze Cardstock with the scallop die from Border Basics.  I added added it to the tree strip and added this whole piece to the card using foam squares.  
I finished the card by wrapping Whip Cream Thread around the card and tying a bow on top of the Wooden Accent.  I stamped the sentiment from Greeting Trends with Beach Breeze ink on Whip Cream Cardstock and cut a banner on the left side.  Enjoy!
