Moonlight in the Trees

The other day I picked up a new embossing folder that I knew would work well with Core'dinations card stock.  It's called Birch Trees and it's from Tim Holtz.  I used it to play along with this week's Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge - Let it Shine.  The challenge was to incorporate a light source in the card.

After embossing and sanding, I punched a hole in the card front and set the golden moon with a pop dot on the inside of the card.  The sanding looks like moonlight bouncing off the birch trees.  I love that sentiment from the Botanical Bookplates stamp set.
