Perfect Sentiments #14 - Snow Covered Trees

Hi Stampers,
Today's post is for the Perfect Sentiments Challenge this week.  We were challenged to make a Sympathy card with an Inspiration Photo as a twist.  I took the Clean and Simple road for this challenge, I love the serenity of the photo, it is just stunning.  I went with what I could see in the photo, the beautiful blue in the sky and water and the snow covered tree. I white embossed the tree and to add interest cut a panel off the left hand side of my card and around the tree. I stamped the tree again in London Fog  on the Whisper White card to pick up the row of trees around the pond. The sentiment depicts the pathway around the pond and the brad is my finishing touch. I then stamped the large oak leaf inside the card to frame the words that might be written. 

Stamps:  S/U's Lovely as a Tree, Warmest Regards (R)
Card: Whisper White, Pacific Point
Ink: Versamark, Stazon Black, Tsukineko Memento London Fog
Finishing Touches: In Colour Brad
Tools: Embossing Buddy, Heat Tool, White EB Powder, 1" Square Punch, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Fiskars Trimmer, Martha Stewart Screw Punch, Dble Sided Tape, Dimensionals
Thanks' for visiting today.
