Papertrey Ink December Blog Hop

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.
Unfortunately, I caught Sage's cold and I felt worse and worse
as the day progressed. 
I'm glad we didn't have people over or plans to go somewhere... ;)

I did feel well enough to spend time in my craft area, making
a card for today's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.

Our challenge was to use this beautiful photo as inspiration:


Isn't it pretty?
I love the fun colours!
The group of colourful trees on the plate
 inspired me to use my Winter Village set to make my card.


I stamped my scene using colours from the inspiration photo.



I added some bakers twine that came in one of the MIM mini-kits
and stamped my sentiment using PTI's Pedal Pusher.

Thanks for looking!
