Christmas Greetings

Hello!

I wanted to share a little Christmas Card I created for a couple challenges over the weekend.


I stamped the "mod pine tree" from WMS's Tiny Trees set in Pear Tart Ink and followed up with the stary garland with Raspberry Fizz ink.  To anchor the tree on the long rectangle, I tore a piece of white cardstock and drew a thin line of glue with my glue pen and followed it with a dusting of glitter to give it that meadow of snow look.  The sentiment, also stamped in Raspberry Fizz, is from Tiny Trees too.

For a finishing touch, I added a little tag that I stamped with the reverse polka dot pattern from Gingham and Co and adhered a small heart die cut.  I topped the tag with a button tied with a bit of Rustic Cream button twine.

Here is a closer look at the tag and glittery snow:


This card is based on sketch 73 for the Waltzingmouse Stamps Weekly Sketch challenge.

I am also linking it to the Casual Fridays Challenge #28- Tag You're It!


Hope you find some inspiration in my take on the sketch and challenge.  There is still time for you to play along. As always, thanks for stopping by!  Your visits and kind thoughts mean so much to me!!!
