O Christmas Trees!

Hello Everybody!

I decided to switch gears and make a Christmas card using a sketch.  Here are the challenges:

Unscripted Sketches #180




Here's my card.  The green Christmas trees are from The Alley Way.  They are on their freebies page which is here.  


I'm not going to lie, I wanted to use red.  But I held back!  The card is cream and the paper with the writing is cream tissue paper with the printed writing.  I used a swirly Christmas tree from Stampendous to make the backgrounds for the green Christmas trees.  I embossed with gold embossing powder.  I used copics for the Christmas trees and a metallic gold marker.  I border punched a piece of brown Bazzill paper and tied a ribbon.  :)


Thanks for stopping by!  Until next time my friends...I am still working on Halloween!  :)
