SSC177 NATURES COLORS, Definitely Decorative Pines, Wonderland, Stampin UP

 WoW, what a difficult color challenge for me at: 
Let me just say I love a dark navy blue, in fact my living room color use to be indigo deep blue.  But to make a card, I just couldn't think of anything.   I thought of going Christmas at first because well I love a blue Christmas, however thinking of evergreens led me to the path I took for this card.  One might say it was quite the "adventure" getting here.  haha.   I used two stampin up sets for this card.  Wonderland for the pine trees with greater detail to them, and a 1998 set called definitely decorative pines for the moose and the pines in the background, I sort of used them for shading, and filling in the space.   The sentiment is from a heidi grace design set  by fiskars. I bought it from the local consignment shop.    The sentiment on the inside of the card is also a stampin up stamp, I just don't have the whole set and I don't know the name.  
I stuck with 3 colors the dark navy, green, and beige, however I did stamp the moose in black, and the card base itself is white.  
I tied some beige colored twine around the card,  with a bronze pine cone on the side for an embellishment to kick it up a notch.  I like how it turned out.  I think I will add this one to my Etsy shop and see what happens. 
I'm including a picture of the first robin to visit our yard this spring.  Whoohoo❕   Spring is in the air.
Thank you for stopping by for a visit. 
Keep Smiling and Keep Stamping
