April 22, 2020 it's Earth Day

Today being Earth Day I decided to join the Jingle Belles Rock for their challenge, they celebrate Earth day every year with a Christmas challenge. It was a comedy of errors, first I couldn't find my "recycle" piece, then I did, took a picture of it to show you, then looked for the dies I needed to use, well I really wanted the larger set of IO deer dies but had to settle for the smaller version, ok trees cut, birds cut where did I put that piece of vinyl wallpaper sample? That meant I went back to where I took the picture and pretending to hold the sample in my hand walked back to the other room and it worked I lifted a paper an voila missing sample found.

This is a vinyl wallpaper sample I've had in my stash for a long time, the store is no longer in the Simcoe Mall. I loved picking up different samples of wallpaper and even counter top chips.
Here is what I did with my sample.

The Birch tree die is from the Frantic Stamper, the deer and cardinals are from Impreesion Obsession and the three dies are my very favourite to use for winter scenes, the background paper (didn't have time to make my own) is from a 12 X 12 paper pad I bought at Walmart 

Finished the inside with some extra cardinals, the set of birds has both small and large cardinals, I used the small on the front and the large on the inside.

Here you have my projectd for Earth Day 2020
I'm entering this in:

Jingle Belles Rock ~~ Peace on Earth Day
