Avery Elle "Anything Goes" Challenge

Hey there!  I'm popping in to share a card I made for Avery Elle's challenge this month.  It's an anything goes challenge this time.  I made a card using one of their free digi images (see HERE).  When I saw this digi image I have to say I saw something other than the obvious lantern image.  I saw it flipped upside down and it became some funky trees!  :-)

What do you think?  I've been wanting to make a card with my "trees" for a while and this challenge gave me the perfect opportunity.  I used my spectrum noir markers to colour in my trees and cut them out so I could pop them out with some foam dots.  I also used some clear glitter to make them sparkle.  Wish it showed better in the picture.  The sentiment is part of the same free digi...mostly.  I separated the "celebrate" from the main image and added in the "the season".   The background was done by stamping my small circle (Technique Tuesday, Flurries set) with white StazOn and sponging blue brocade (SU!) in a ombré type look.  I added some snowy hills cut out by hand.  I am quite pleased with the results of this card.

Anyway, thanks for stopping by and hope you have a great day!  For those celebrating US Thanksgiving, enjoy your turkey!
