Pretty Pines Christmas Card

What is better than the smell of fresh pines, as the snow blankets the forest...or in my case "woods'.  See I am from the the South, and we call the group of pine trees "the woods".  But let's get back to the smell of pines. 

While I do have an artificial Christmas tree, I love to have pines in the house in some form.  This year it will be through candles which will make me think of snow and pine trees.

This card from those thoughts, a pine bough with pretty ribbon handing from barn wood.

The Pretty Pines Thinlet dies is one of my favorite in the current Stampin' Up! Annual catalog.  I have made some of my Christmas cards from this set the last two years.

I paired this with a sentiment from the Snowflake Sentiments Stamp set. I know right, I was just looking for a sentiment and then realized the name hahaha.

The sentiment is embossed with ink and clear embossing powder.  I wanted it to be subtle like it was part of the barn wood.
