Hiking is good for your health

Today, I have a nature inspired card.  Here in Southern California, we are fortunate to have some wonderful mountains.   I love to drive around my city, especially when there are snow covered mountains.  Today's card reminds me of this time.
The base of the card is Cocoa Powder Cardstock.  I then took a piece of Summer Romance Pattern Paper to make the sky.  I stamped the sentiment from the Climbing Mountains with Black Licorice ink in the top right corner. 
Next, I stamped the different mountains with Black Licorice ink on Oatmeal Cookie, Cocoa Powder and Whip Cream Cardstock.  I detail cut each mountain and snow.  I then paper pieced them back together.  I then staggered them on the card, adhering them with foam squares for depth.
I then took a piece of Limeade Splash and Kiwi Slice Cardstock to make the grassy area in front of the mountains.
To finish the card, I added Journey Sparkle Dust and Journey Glaze to the top of the mountains and added a Lemon Grass Thread bow to the card.  Enjoy!
