Following the Holiday Trend Before... and After

I really, really like the "forest of trees made with DP" style holiday cards that have been posted all over the place. This is my attempt.

I think I have the right idea and I like how the moon reflects on the dusting of snow on the ground but I'm wondering if the DP on my trees is too boring?

Go ahead- do your thing with my card!

Here is the new and improved version. I made my snow brighter, chose some bolder patterned paper, skinnier tree trunks, a smaller moon and some bling for the treetops! Thanks for the help!

I kinda like them! If you want to add a little more zing, could you pop up one of them on dimensionals? What about some glitter or stickles for snow, maybe in the sky and on the trees.

I like it just the way they are. I think you've made a beautiful, serene card and if your DP has too much decoration/design to it, it would detract from the rest of the card. It's really pretty just like it is.

This is a great layout and card, love the idea, I would maybe try some brighter paper with a smaller pattern, but what is important is what looks right to your eye

I like the layout but I agree with Flossie that a brighter paper with a smaller pattern on the trees might help. Also, what if you made the tree trunks a little skinnier? Love the moon and reflection.

Oooh, much brighter (if that's the look you were going for!) I personally like the second one better. Thanks for the update!
