Happy Day!

Of course it's a happy day, it's Friday! The little blue bird in my card is happy because he's landed himself in a tree that's brimming with crystals!

(click to enlarge)

I used the summer season tree from the Seasonal Trees Set at to make this card. I originally wanted to put red brads or crystals in the tree to mimic apples, but I didn't have enough red brads, and I had zero red crystals. So I chose the one crystal I had enough of the same color in. I'm smart like that. :)

I colored this with copic markers and then chalked the sky and ground. The grass was stamped over the chalk. Here are the copic colors I used

The green layer behind the image is embossed with the textile embossing folder from Provocraft and the card base is Kraft.
I computer generated the words. I think all of the seasonal trees in the set are so cute. I'll be glad when the weather is telling me to print the winter one!
Ya'll take care, have a great day, and thanks for looking!

cute card, but had to comment on your WINTER loving post. My family has wondered for years if I should be committed for loving winter as much as i do.

Love it, Love it. (except ice, but hey that's allowed isn't it)

Sorry I haven't commented for a while...I don't want you to think I don't love you anymore :)
Everything you've been doing lately is soooooo awesome! Your mojo is really on fire right now and I'm looking forward to more wonderful Holly creations ♥

I love your card!

You can color your crystals with copics to make them any color you want! I tried it recently andit works great!

I'm with you about wanting some winter back! It's already hit 94 here and it's not even officially summer yet! :(

I totally agree about the Holly Happys! I have withdrawals pains when I'm out of town and can't get my daily dose!

This card is an awesome idea! LOVE the crystals!!!
