Behind our house we have a green belt going up the hill. It is a place were people can walk their dogs (off-leash if they like). The hills is scattered with wild grasses and several groupings of birch trees. One group of trees is right behind our house. Looking out my kitchen window as the sun set the beautiful birch trees almost looked like were on fire with their pretty golden leaves shinning brightly in the setting sun.
With this image in mind I made this pretty card.
I used the foliage stamp from Sheltering tree to stamp light green and golden leaves directly onto my embossing folder before I embossed the cardstock. I also added sparkly gold sequins to mimic the bright reflecting sunlight. The little bird is perched on a branch cut from the Tim Holtz branch tree die and placed in front of the embossed trees. I clipped a few "slits" into it to simulate the birch bark design.
