O' Christmas Tree

For this Karen Lockhart Christmas tree card I used some non traditional colors and decided to go with a red and blue theme with a little gold mixed in. The tree was stamped using Brilliance ink and colored with Copics then I cut and embossed the image with my Nesties and added a mat and pop dots. The red back ground panel was embossed using my Swiss Dot Cuttlebug embossing folder. After the card was assembled I added some Champagne Designer Stickles to the string of beads running through the tree and the star on top so that the whole image would sparkle.

Its late so my post is short, my day was filled with running errands and getting more Christmas shopping done.

Love this tree! The colors are great and aren't those sparklers the greatest things? They're easy to put on and add so much sparkle to a card. Love it!

Have fun with your errands.
