Happy Monday - Challenge #6 - It's in the Ad!

Happy Monday Bloggers!

I am happy to report that Dave and I made it back to Dallas safely. For those who don't know, we went to Pennsylvania this weekend for the Ruhl Family Reunion. While we were there David got to meet my Dad's family and Mom's family - the loved him, and a good time was had by all.

Now it's back to the o'l grindstone, and time for another new challenge for at Paper Therapy. This weeks challenge is to create a project inspired by this ad:

And here's my take on the challenge:

I was inspired more by the apearence of depth in this ad than anything else, so I tried to design a card that had the appearence of looking through a row of trees.  These cute trees were cut from my Cricut and the new Creative Memories Cartridge.  The larger trees are pop-dotted up to give the look of dimension.  This week was a real challenge for me, but I had a great time.  Can't wait to see what you come up with.

Have a great Monday!
