I used the Lovely as a Tree stamp set (SU), along with the Snowflakes set (retired SU), I stamped the snowflakes on the Brocade Blue CS using versamark, then I stamped the trees on the Whisper White CS using StazOn. After that I mounted the WW peice to Brushed Silver CS and added stickles to the trees and ground to give the icey effect (used a brush to apply it so it was a soft brushed look.) I used Crystal stickles on the ground for snow, then I used Waterfall stickles in the trees to create the icey effect. I added some ribbon to the card base (ribbon bought from HL) and mounted the image peice after it dryed.
**On a side note, my neighbor decided to lift the tree off my roof (yes it was still there, there have been so many downed trees that housing hadn't been able to get to it yet). Several of the branches are broken and who knows what will happen to the tree when the ice melts. But I thought I would take a picture of it this morning:
It looks so sad.....

This was taken first thing this morning, the tree now hangs lower.
Another view of the tree.
Everything is completely covered in ice. The bushes you see in the background by my porch are covered in almost an inch of ice. My mailbox was covered in an inch of ice as well. I went out and chipped away at that so that doesn't have ice on it anymore though. It is supposed to continue until possibly tomorrow morning and then snow and sleet on Thursday. Oh the joys of winter. *rolling eyes*
