A Card of Blue!

The blog at Impression Obsession has a challenge going - Feeling Blue?, using their products. 
So I decided I would create a card for their challenge since I have a few of their dies. 

It is not a true blue, but more of muted tones. 
First I misted some grey Bazzill cardstock with Ocean ColorShine.
Then I cut out the fir trees and the birch trees.  I wanted the fir trees to have more texture so I ran them through an embossing folder.
The grass I wanted it to sparkle like it had frost on it and used some Wink of Stella.  But it is hard to see unless you see it in person. 
And lastly I cut the deer of blue vellum, so they would look like shadows in the woods. 

And here it is. 

Dies used:  Deer Trio DIE080-N
                  Birch Trees DIE079-U
                 Grass Border DIE60-I
                  Fir Trees DIE084-V

Today, Kirsten and I ran down the road to Helena.  There was a new Hobby Lobby that opened yesterday and we wanted to check it out!!!  It is very nice and I didn't even go overboard buying stuff.  But, Cooper had to twist my arm into buying him a railroad sign for him.  He is obsessed with train stuff.  Every time he sees track or signs he almost goes into orbit.
We hit up Costco.  Had lunch at Buffalo Wild Wing.  A quick trip around Ben Franklin and Target and back home.   Cooper was very good putting up with the two lady shoppers.  We must have worn him out, 'cause he slept all the way home!!! 
Tomorrow will be a catch up day at home.  Cleaning and laundry!

Leslee, I love this scene with the sot muted blues and especially the deer in blue velum. They do look like shadows in the woods. Adding texture to the fir trees with an embossing folder is genius. This is such a lovely card.
