I made my card using the retired Stampin Up! set called "Serene Silhouettes", this beautiful set came out in the 2012-2013 catalog, it has 4 fabulous images that can be used for any occasion, here is my card.
This gorgeous group of trees really called for a sunset type of card so I went looking for some cards on Pinterest to get an idea of how to go about getting the colors right. I found THIS CARD and went to work.
I first die cut the circle then, I punched a small circle to mask the sun and proceeded to sponge the sky with Hello Honey and Tangelo Twist inks, I took the mask off and sponged a bit of the left over Hello Honey on my dauber on the sun then, using my MISTI I stamped the tree image and the birds, which are from another retired SU set called "Up, Up & Away" (2011-2012 catalog), several times to get an even coat of Versafine Onix Black ink and then, I heat embossed them with clear embossing powder.
I glued this circle on my white panel and stamped the sentiment from a retired Flourishes set called "Orchids".
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card, using another one of the images on this set.
