Pine Cone Christmas

     I'm so enjoying the sets from MHK Designs!  I think I have almost all of  Mynn's sets but she comes up with new releases every month so I may have missed one.  :-D  But this set is so perfect for Christmas and I knew it would be best used in a very simple design.


     I used my ProMarkers to color the pine cones, then cut them out and punched the corners.  I sized the sentiment fairly large so that it would be the focus of the card, printed and punched the corners of that piece as well.  I layered everything onto forest green CS and mounted all of it onto the card front.  It looked just a bit bare in the upper corner so I added the bow.  Perfect!
