Pine branches...

Monday again!  And the final countdown to Christmas!  And my last few Christmas cards for the year.

Today’s card came about in an unusual way.  I pewter embossed the pine branch on a piece of lost lagoon.  I was intending to die cut either a stitched circle or a stitched oval out of the image.  And then do something with it.  But then I decided to cut the oval out of the soft sky and I liked the way it showcased the branch.  So I decided to go with that!
