A Cupcake Inspiration challenge #341

This morning I ran across a card made by another blogger whose inspiration was off the blog  "Cupcake Inspirations" here:

The challenge is to make a card based and inspired by this picture.

This is the first time I'd seen this blog and when I saw the inspiration picture for this challenge I knew exactly the card I wanted to do.  It had been milling in my mind for sometime now.  I had even thought of doing it for my Christmas cards for this past Christmas but went a different direction instead.  So with this challenge it gave me the push I needed to make this card anyway.  

 The card is simple linen paper in a off white cream color.  I used a Tim Holtz die for the trees, cutting several of them.  Each one is then painted with picket Fence Distress Stain and Wink of Stella clear glitter added here and there. (see next picture for the highlighting effect it gives).

Over all a simple card which I think came out wonderfully.

Thank you for taking a look and have a blessed happy creative day.
