Wonderland Greetings

I am so happy with everything about this card! I had a vision and I was able to put it to paper. The brick wall was a bit of a contrast with the trees, so I decided to stamp it with Hardwood. Can you believe it? The separation between the wood planks line up perfectly with the separation between the bricks!

I printed "Greetings from Lake Tahoe" from my computer and cut it using the Washi Label punch.

Stamps - Hardwood (133035), Winter Wishes (139745), Wonderland (140365)
