Magical Woodland - January Lavinia Stamp Challenge

 Hi, Crafty Mates!

I am jumping off a big cliff today.  I wanted to enter one of my cards into the Lavinia Stamps Monthly Challenge.  Most of the entries are just dazzling, so I don't know how my little creation will stack up to all that wonderful creativity, but this is my year to enter more challenges and do new things!  Unfortunately, two of my images are not Lavinia Stamps so this project is not eligible.  Still, I had a blast creating this project.

I stamped one of my trees with Memento Rich Cocoa and Ranger Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  I wanted my palette to be a mixture of the browns, blues, and greens that happen in nature.
I am so pleased with my moon!  The moon is such an important element in many of these fantasy creations.  I try to put one in all of my projects just to get more practice.  I used Lost Shadow, Hickory Smoke, Squeezed Lemonade, and Stormy Sky to create my moon.

I try to keep my interior templates simple.  I think I may give this card to my hubby.  He has been so protective since my diagnosis and doesn't really like to go into public spaces.  We met and got married while we were in the military.  In the beginning, we didn't have a lot of money.  He was always coming up with creative and imaginative ways for us to enjoy our "date nights!"  I think I will recreate one of those "adventures."
