Trees

Hi There

I had made a resolution of sorts to keep up with my Christmas cards and make 5 per month.  I fell off that resolution wagon in May.  I am behind by 20 cards.  Fortunately there are several challenges  running right now that inspired me.



I've die cut my front panel with two SSS dies, Stitched shapes and birchtree window.  I mounted that panel on a piece of MFT cornflower glitter cardstock.  I added a bit under my sentiment (Stampin Up) strip.  A few tiny 2mm pretty pink posh sequins were added to finish it off.  This was a fairly quick card to make and I will likely make at least 4 more for the stash.

I'm entering this card to the following challenges.

City Crafter Challenge - CAS Christmas
Addicted to Stamps - Holiday
CAS Christmas Card - Trees
Always Fun Challenges -Let it sparkle

 Thanks so much for stopping by.
