Woodland City Crafter Challenge

Hi everyone!

I'm so happy to be guest designing over at City Crafter today!

The challenge this week is, "Woodland Animals."

I decided to make a forest scene and was so excited to be able to use my new Poppy Stamps stick trees. I think they are so cute, I love the fun stitching:

I guess when looking at this card one can tell.... I pretty much love all stitching! I'm so glad that is a trend in card making now. There are so many companies coming out with fun stitched dies.
 I used MB cross stitched rectangles, MFT zig zag stitched circles, and Lawn Fawn stitched border dies for the grass. 

I had lots of fun making this card for the challenge, I hope you head over to check out City Crafters and play along!
