Over the tree tops

Hi all!
Have you ever started out with an idea
and ended up doing something totally different?
That's what happened with this card.
I used
"Tree" (#14501) and
"Sleigh and Reindeer" (#15705)
from QKR Stampede to make this card.
I started it with a totally different thought,
even a different image that would be the focal point of the card.
I found a sheet of patterned paper in my stash with the trees on it.
I thought it might be interesting to us some
Distress Ink (Broken China) to give it different color.
Then I thought about the Sleigh and Reindeer
image and how cute it would be flying over the trees.
Then I decided to stamp a few Tree images
and color them with Distress Ink (Peeled Paint)
I fussy cut them and added them to the card,
I used some foam tape to give that middle one a bit of depth.
I do love how this card turned out,
even if I didn't do anything that I planned to do.

For the inside of the card,
I used an embossing folder and ran it through my Cuttlebug. 
Love the snowflakes!
I think I'll add a handwritten sentiment to this one.
Now to get back to that image I was planning to use on the card,
hmmmm what should I do with it?
Thanks for stopping by today,
I hope you've been inspired in some way by my card. 
Even if it's just to go ahead and veer off course
when the mood strikes you.
Leave me a comment if you will and come again soon.
Until next time, Happy Crafting!
