To Pine or Not to Pine

To Pine or Not to Pine

I’ve been pining for these pine trees ever since I first saw them, but (as is often the case) once I have them in my possession, I don’t exactly know what to do with them. I decided to try them for today’s sketch challenge on SCS (SC248). The card came together rather quickly, so I made 9 more of them, just in time to meet the deadline for this month’s Christmas Card challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!

    I have the same problem with this set! I guess I just want to make 100 of the cards in the catalog, which is fine, but I can’t come up with a good design of my own. YOURS looks fab, though. 🙂

    Vera – This is FANTASTIC! It’s my FAVORITE card that I’ve seen so far using this set. I guess I “might” need this set after all!! Great, great job!

    This is without a doubt one of the best designs using this week’s SC on SCS! Perfection!
