Avery Elle More Stories: All is Calm

Avery Elle recently released a charming set of little animals called More Stories - it's the second set to Storybook.  I ordered immediately, not only because they are totally cute, but also because I envisioned them sitting in front of the trees from the Let It Snow.  More Stories comes with a variety of scene builders - kites for the spring, grass and flowers for the summer, falling leaves for autumn and snowflakes for winter - so it is perfect for all times of the year.  The four animals in the set have such sweet and gentle expressions; I think they are perfect for this calm scene.

All is Calm

I'm linking this up to the current clean and simple challenge at Avery Elle...keeping in mind that there's not a lot of white space but there is open space.
