Tree Poem in Twilight

Hi there, I hope you had a wonderful Wednesday!  My card today uses the pretty Stampendous Tree Poem stamp, which was designed by Lisa Hindsley who also wrote the poem.  

I first stamped the image in StazOn Stone Gray on Shimmery White paper, then created a mask for the moon using a circle punch and post-it note.  The background was sponged with Bordering Blue, Adirondack Aqua, Lavender Lace, Adirondack Purple Twilight and Adirondack Denim.  It's hard to believe I used that many colors to blend it!

Before mounting the focal piece I wrapped a piece of sheer blue ribbon and did my triple loop bow. A clear Stampin' Up circle rhinestone brad accents the center.  Everything was mounted to a cardbase called Fresh Air.

It has been a while since I created a scenic card - I think my Stampscapes stamps are calling me :-)  

They were predicting snow for the weekend, but I think that has since changed.  Cloudy and windy is my prediction.

Thank you for stopping by and I truly appreciate all your comments.

This is wonderful, Donna!
I love the colors, and especially the delicacy of the tree.

Donna, what a beautiful creation! Your sponging is so pretty and makes the perfect background for the sweet poem and tree. I visited Stampendous so that I could see the poem up close .... it's lovely!! Hope your forecast is correct and you miss out on the snow storm. The snow began here around 6:30 am and it's piling up pretty fast!
