Picture It Perfect Blog Hop - 28 Jan

Welcome to the Picture It Perfect Blog Hop.

Can't wait to see all the fab creations in todays hop!

So, without further ado, here is my photo creation...

The photo used in this card was taken by a family friend, Joe MacRae.  He is such a fantastic photographer and you can visit his website here:  Joe MacRae Website.  The photo is taken in a local woods.  The bridge is so overgrown with moss, weeds, grass and fir.  It's stunning.

Photograph - "Reelig Wood Bridge"
A5 white card blank
Glossy Photo Paper
Tim Holtz Citrus Alcohol Ink
Tim Holtz Meadow Alcohol Ink
Tim Holtz Blender
Dark Green Card
Lime Green Card

Adhesive Gems
Double Sided Stick Tape
3D Foam Pads
