All Seasons Card

We'll I have to say I love all seasons.  The reasons range from my love of gardening, the holidays, the kiddos going back to school :), and family time during summer-time BBQs.  How can I pick of favorite??

I've had this card in mind ever since I first looked in the Simpy Charmed booklet.  I just fell in love with these seasonal trees!! :)

I used craft colored card stock for the card base. For the background paper I matted a piece of DCWV glitter paper on some white card stock.  All the cuts were from Simply Charmed (if you don't have this cart, it really is worth the money and time to get it). 

I added the sentiment that I printed up on my computer.  It reads:

There is no season such delights can bring 
As summer, autumn, winter and spring.
-William Browne

I embellished the little seasonal scenes with embossing (Snowflakes on winter, Swiss Dots on spring and summer, and Perfectly Paisley of fall), glitter glue, a little glossy accents and gel pen doodles around the little frames as well as the card base (front and inside).  I also attached a sheer blue ribbon on the card front under the sentiment.

If you are interested in re-creating my card I am sharing the Gypsy file with you!! I LOVE freebies and blogs that share files ROCK!! 
(Yep, I am saying "I ROCK!!") :)
