Montana Skies

I'm using one of the papers from my Counterfeit Kit Challenge set #3 along with the dies I had pulled out as some of the embellishments. I now remember why this paper has been in my stash for a while.  I love the colors but it was hard to use, the picture seemed to get lost, the background papers were either jumping off the page or blending into the background.  I finally just walked away then came back to it.


I added the punched border to help ground the pictures and the mats, then added the black behind the deer for a shadow and a punched piece that the birdhouse and final sign is on (my visual triangle of three).


I again used some of the Mini Alphabet that I made as I didn't have any in orange and the blue that I did have just wasn't the right color.  I so love the Birch tree die - it reminds me of the Quakie trees in Montana.

Thanks for stopping by.
