Merry Christmas Tree

Hi again!  I'm back with the quickest of posts to share a card I made mostly to add to my Christmas card stash, but that fits a couple of challenges, too.  It is for Paper Crafting Journey (Christmas projects), Charisma Cardz #49 (Christmas makes) and Simon Says Stamp Challenge (what's your favorite - mine is glitter).

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are GKD Red Hot and the patterned papers are from the Recollections Bright Christmas 6x6 pad.  The cute Christmas tree is from Whimsy and Stars Studio.  Mabelle generously shared it on her blog as a freebie at the end of November.  I printed it on Make it Colour Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  I added all kinds of glitter to the image to make it sparkle (Red and Aqua Stickles, Stamp La Jolla Christmas Red and New Fallen Snow and Recollections Fine Glitter to the grass in the pot).  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  It is from the recent Winter Club.  A few red gems finished my nice flat, mailable card!

Here is a close-up of the cute tree:

Thanks for stopping by again!  I will be back tomorrow with my DT posts for Guylou's Inimitability and the Copic/Promarker Challenge at The Outlawz.

Have a great evening!
