Peace Within

Good Morning!  A chilly start to the day, but at least it is not like last year when we woke up to the aftermath of a far so good. 

Today's card was made for the Challenges at Double D, Brrrrr~!, Simon Says Wednesday, Anything Goes! and Simon Says Work It Wednesday, Use Something New.

Of course I was drawn to those beautiful Red most favorite in all the land!
I used the stamp set, Through The Trees from Papertrey Ink.  My NEW items are the dies, Memory Box, Birch Trio and MFT, Snow Drifts.

I started with a black glitter card stock and then built up my birch tree forest, adding a snowy slope.  The second row has been popped up on 3 dimensionals.  Each snowy slope has chunky glitter and each birch tree has a fine glitter added to it and then some Wink Of Stella Clear.  I stamped a bazillion Red Cardinals and then fussy cut them out.....need to find out if PTI has a matching die, these were a pain to cut out.  lol  BUT worth it, I think!  I have been wanting to make this style card for ages and now I have all the ingredients.
Thanks for flying in!
