I really like the sentiments on this set but the images are not my favorite. I really like how this card turned out though! I didn’t have the darker brown marker so to make do I used the Gold Brown marker and colored the pine cones twice to create a darker color that matched the kraft paper perfectly! I thought using the animal image as a background for the inside sentiment also worked well.

Picture My Life cards work so great to make quick and easy cards. I just love this Christmas set because I can make different cards to send a unique one to each of my friends and family without spending a ton of time creating. So many of these can just be added to a card front but I like to add a little bit of embellishments. (And I have just a few extras around!)
