Snow Goose Card

 
This time of year the Canadian Geese have been flying around here in abundance!  We don't usually see very many Snow Geese, but I think they are beautiful to see too!  The geese were inspiration to have a go at some of the fun Memory Box dies.

From the Magnolia-licious online store:
MB 182 FLYING GOOSE DIE
MB 241 BIRCH TRIO DIE
MB 114 MAGNIFICENT PINE DIE
alternative trees IO 84 FIR TREES DIES
I wanted a brown tree trunk, so here is a photo of how I trimmed off the branches.  I left a bump on the trunk to give me a little more space to glue and so I knew where to glue the green branches back on.  Thought this way also added to the dimension.  Was easy to do, but even easier would be just to use a brown marker to color the trunk.

The Snow Goose was paper pieced with some black accents, but there again a marker could be used to make it even easier.  I also used a little black chalk on the goose and birch trees for shading.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Enjoy every day!!!

Just did a big commentary and lost it so hope you don't get it twice.
I think your card is brilliant. I love how you have put black on the ends of the wings, coloured the little cutouts on the trio of trees and shaded the ground. the whole scene is wonderful. You are so clever.

Hi Patti Jo,
GREAT job using all the dies and for a male card to!!
Fantastic ideas that you have.
The geese are beautiful to look at especially as they fly in their V shaped way going south. We have both kinds of geese where I live. Only problem is the awful mess they make :o(
Big Hugs, Candy
