Blue-Gray Trees on Teal

I designed today's card using some tree trunk shapes left over from last week's tree card.  A short strip of card stock grounds my scene, and the small punched dots (light bulbs? fruit? leaves?) encourage the eye to move around the card.  The light blue-gray trees stand out against the deep teal and navy. 

Card details:

  • Card stock is Paper Source hydrangea (light blue-gray) and cobalt (navy) and Papertrey Ink (PTI) tropical teal. 
  • Dies are Elizabeth Craft hello (retired) and PTI mighty oak cover plate. 
  • The dots are punched with my very old 1/4" circle punch.
