The freebie this week is Cactus Tree and the $1 stamp is Christmas Cactus Tree. Both are so fun, but unfortunately, I didn't manage to get cards done with them. I did make a card with the spotlighted stamp, Swings 'n Slides Snowballs, though. This cutie makes for a perfect Christmas or Winter card!
My card base and mats are SU Riding Hood Red and the patterned papers are from the Recollections Festivus 6x6 pad. I colored up Snowballs with my Copics, then added a little Snow-Tex (thanks, Jenny) to the snow on the ground and the snowballs. The sentiment is from Create With TLC. A Memory Box Snowflake Corner and a red taffeta bow finished my card.
Here is a close-up of the colored image:
