The Sunday CD Challenge - Trees and Shrubs

Hi,
Today its raining yet again,   we had a very bad night with high winds and heavy rain,   Somerset has had more than its fair share of rain.  The Somerset Levels are flooded and now they have brought in more pumps to pump some of the water off the levels,   The wildlife will be suffering as their are a lot of ground nesting birds that use the Levels at this time of year.  The water is being pumped off the Levels and into the River Tone,  so although we are still in drought conditions the water they say we need so badly is being put into the river to go down to the sea. I will say no more.
 Today I bring you my card for the Sunday CD Challenge,   I did like the challenge of trees and shrubs,  but I chose trees.  The backing paper is from a free CD that came with the magazine Papercraft Inspirations some time ago.  The Cd is called Digital Designing Favourites edition - Docrafts.   I did print this sheet off for the spots and dots challenge some weeks ago but I was not well enough to make the card.
The trees are embossed using a stamp my husband brought me some time ago and I love this stamp called Fantasy no 3880K by Penny Black.
I put green gems on the green trees and clear gems on the white tree in the background. and finished off with  silver peel offs.

These are two close up of the trees.  Its a quick card this week as we go on holiday so this will be the last card for a couple of weeks.






I hope you like my card,  and until we meet again in blog land, stay dry and take care




Hugs
Margaret
