Good morning! My favorite papercrafting season has to be fall, when all of the Christmas lines come out! I have several cards for you today using Papertrey Ink's October 2012 Release. Since the sets used in this post are from the August release, they will be available tonight at 10pm, EST, at Papertrey Ink. All of the new products used in this post can be seen HERE on Nichole's blog.
First up is Peaceful Pinecones. I opted for blue-green tones instead of forest green, thinking that the blue greens looked snowier--just a little color twist, and a lot of Chamomile Vintage Distress ink on the edges!
