Merry Christmas!

City Crafter Challenge
(Christmas trees)

Happy Holidays!

Still making those Christmas cards?  I thought I was done until I saw the gorgeous Christmas tree image as seen above over at City Crafter!  Such a lovely tree with wonderful color!

I brought out my new metallic colored pencils from Faber-Castell, so I gold embossed a tree and colored some bulbs.  I wanted the tree to shine and made it very CAS.  I changed it up three times before I settled with the final photo.  I'm just one of those gals that have to layer and layer and add and!  So, is my card....

I started with a blue card base and added a scallop panel that was die cut.  The die is from MFT.  The tree image and sequin are from Paper Sweeties and the ribbon is from PTI.  Well, that's all for now.  I hope all is going well in your world during this holiday season.  Take care and thanks so much for dropping by today!
