Merry Monday #159 - Non Evergreen Tree's

Hello friends.  Playing with the Merry Monday challenge today, where we are being asked to use non - evergreen tree's on our Christmas card.  I have lots of Oak and Maple tree stamps, but none of them make me think Christmas.  And of course I have a ton of evergreen tree stamps!  Oh dear, what to use?!!!  Oh wait...don't I have a birch tree winter scene stamp???  Yep, somewhere!  Found it!!  And I even have an idea!  And then I sat there and stared and stared at it...my idea in my head was not going to work, was it?!!  So anyway, I have no white birch tree's to show you this morning.  I have colorful tree's against a silvery night sky...but I actually like it!  What do you think???



My background is a combination of distress inks (Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky, Faded Jeans, Salty Ocean, & Picked Raspberry), and then I embossed with silver, Hero Arts Merriest Christmas Wish stamp.  I matted this panel to a white card base and then added another white panel over top with a circle die cut (Lil Inkers).  My sentiment is from PTI's Christmas Blessings.
