I have the same Aspen Trees TCW template and I loved how she used it on her card.
Things I changed - I sponged my trees on white cardstock instead of patterned paper - I used a different bird (the cardinal is my favorite!) and made the snowy ground with a torn piece of white card stock covered with Crystal Ice Stickles instead of paint. I had a little trouble masking and sponging my moon behind the trees - it's not quite a perfect circle (!?!) and my colors kept mixing when I was sponging the different areas. It took me a few tries to figure out just how you did that Sabrina!!
My card is 4 1/4" x 4 1/4"
The cardinal is a mini die from Tim Holtz - I colored the black bit on his face and feet with a marker and I sponged all the edges with Ranger Distress Brushed Corduroy. He's popped up on the snow with foam tape.
Thanks for your wonderful inspiration Sabrina - and enjoy your week in the FS gallery!
This is also for this months Central Theme - Baby it's Cold outside!
