Trees of Joy

Some of us coaches accepted a challenge a couple weeks ago to make a card using a stamp from our Holiday Mini.  I just got in my back order a few days earlier and I wanted to play with our Winter Hills die set.  This card kinda met what I was envisioning but still is off a bit.  I'm not sure what I don't like about the card.

It could be that I should have used the fine tip of my personal embossing pen instead of the chisel tip. Or that I didn't pop up the front tree enough as it blends in with the back two.  What do you think?

I used my PanPastels to color the sky, some white for the moon (looks like it's in a mist) and a bit of yellow around it.  A splatter of Silver Silk for snow flakes.

I die cut the Joy from the Snapshot Frames die set then layered it on our new Brush Silver card stock.  A few bit of the Holiday Elements sequins for fun.  Did you notice... no stamping?

Card Stocks:  Fresh Forest, Denim Days, Cranberry Bliss, and Brush Silver.
Dies: Winter Hills and Snapshot Frames

PanPastels - Party Pop set
White Embossing Powder
Holiday Elements sequins

I will be playing more with the Winter Hills dies as it has tabs to make it work for Bendy cards.  I have yet to make one of those.  Hmmm... a snowman in front.  Yep, ideas are coming in!

Hey Carol! I really like the card layout but not sure about the colors.
Even so, it's a cool card for you challenge!
